Nestled in the Shirak Province of Armenia is Gyumri, the second largest city in Armenia.  With a unique dialect and culture, Gyumri was a pleasure to visit and conduct our diabetes research and outreach.  The Gyumri people have a sweet nature, and the healthcare providers we collaborated with are extraordinary in their passion.  We also visited and were inspired by the Harichavank Monastery, as well as the magical “Hole in the Rock” in Gyumri which grants wishes to those who crawl through it.  Here are a few snapshots from our time there, with more content to follow.
