Nele graduated in December 2017 as a medical doctor. She has already gained experiences in several global health topics due to voluntary work during her studies. For her doctoral thesis she went to Mwanza, Tanzania and did a research about antimicrobial resistances. While doing internships in Nepal, Spain and Switzerland and due to years of medical work with asylum seekers, she had the chance to get in contacted with different cultures and learn a lot from people with various backgrounds.
As a medical student in her final year and part of the “Global Health” curriculum at Justus Liebig University Gießen, Lena became more and more interested in Global Health. For her, listening and the will to understand different backgrounds as well as social structures is of uttermost importance so that reflected, responsible and appropriate actions can be taken.
To face this challenge, she is still learning for herself to try as much as possible and to encourage others to not lose focus of these principles.
With a background in European Studies, Economics and Medicine, Lukas has a particular interest in Universal Health Coverage and societal problems affecting health.
