Gloria Otoo Nursing Ph.D. Student
"To be able to do research on malaria in my home country was the opportunity of a lifetime.
"I spent nearly two weeks in Ghana in August, as part of my research requirements towards my Nursing Ph.D. I truly felt privileged to be there, and I was working on a disease that takes so many lives.
"I was part of the team monitoring data on the prevalence of malaria in the region and I initiated the trial of malaria medication effectiveness at one of the primary sites. Making sure we have the correct data will enable us to determine what strategies are most effective in fighting this awful disease.
"I will earn my Ph.D. in 2015, and I am so proud that I am among the first doctoral candidates here at Molloy."
