RICE 360° INSTITUTE FOR GLOBAL HEALTH

Rice 360° brings together an international group of faculty, students, clinicians, and private and public sector partners to design innovative health technologies for poor settings, to develop and implement entrepreneurial approaches that increase access to these technologies around the world, and to prepare students to lead tomorrow’s global health technology workforce.

ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT

In 2006, Elizabeth was a junior in high school in Waterford, Virginia and becoming a doctor was on her radar. On a whim, she and her mother, a physical therapist, emailed a small hospital in Malawi to ask if they could come for the summer to help. Six months later, the reply was: “Yes, come.” And they went, providing physical therapy and taking vital signs all summer long.
