Reflection: December 21st (and during Winter Break)
I think these next few weeks will be 20%-filled! I spent all of break writing college essays and taking care of family business, so unfortunately I was not able to spend a lot of time taking the photos that I was planning to take for this project. I did, however, spend some time brainstorming photo subjects and, if I am being completely honest, I am still at a loss. I thought about it and I believe part of my issue is that I do not really go anywhere that isn't my house or school and, in these two locations, there is little to take mother/baby-related photos. In the coming weeks, especially after exams, I am going to need to get out of the house in order to take these photos!
In order to make sure that I am making progress even if I cannot quickly find subjects, I am going to start writing up the story that I will include on the final product. I found it a few weeks ago and as soon as I write it up and include some photos to go along with it, I will be right on my way to finishing this project on time!
Welcome to my blog about female/maternal global health. For some time now, I have been intrigued by medicine - both the history of past medical practices and the future that we are working toward. As a result, I have begun to look into the topic of maternal health - a plight that the world has struggled with for millennia. Although it has become clear that we, as a global society, have made tremendous headway in protecting women's health worldwide, there is still much to be done in order to completely eliminate the problem. In this blog I will summarize and discuss my research as well as debate/support the convictions of others. Through this project I strive to make the world more aware of the global issues surrounding maternal health and of that which each person can do in support. Thank you for visiting!
