Recently, GEMS 7th Grade Social Studies classes experienced Uganda via Tamar Goldberg – a senior in the UVM College of Medicine. This past winter she traveled with other UVM students to Uganda to learn and assist in delivering medical care in a large hospital in the capital city of Kampala.


Tamar shared her experiences with her host family and what the challenges were in delivering healthcare in a country that might not be as well off as our own. Tamar was also able to give us great insight into this land, and the traditions and the climate of this far off country located on the Equator. There was even video of a whitewater rafting trip on the Nile!
