Although our time in Armenia is coming to a close, our work continues as we return home to analyze our data as well as continue to build partnerships within this wonderful country. Many friendships were born here, including those with our new friends and fellow researchers at Yerevan State Medical School. Without a doubt, this is the happiest group of researchers ever, and their optimism, ethic, and just plain good-ness combined won over hearts throughout Armenia. Diabetes research and outreach is this year’s project, with so much more to come! Note: This research is not for profit, and there are a few songs on this video journal that I hope will meet all of the set guidelines for student work.
What better way to express how one feels than to lip sync – er – sing about it! In short, our time in Armenia introduced us all to…
What an adventure this has been! Tonight we were dancing in the rain nestled in a valley outside of Yerevan- we can all check that experience off from our “Armenia Bucket List”. It’s incredible to imagine that we are on the cusp of returning home – Armenia and our colleagues here have touched our hearts. Here are a few more photos of our time doing diabetes research and outreach, with a few video retrospectives to follow.
