OLAGA Energetics Study Research Assistant

June 2018 - August 2018 Āpia, Tuamasaga
“The relationship the YSPH team has built with the Ministry of Health in Samoa is something truly admirable. The team members of these research projects put so much care into what they do, and it was an absolute privilege to be a part of the Energetics Study this past summer. Our days in the villages consisted of taking anthropometric measurements, doing blood pressure and HbA1c tests on participants, and explaining the results to each participant alongside our Samoan enumerators. Many hours were spent doing field work in several villages for our study. At times, these workdays were extensive and exhausting. Yet, seeing how much the village leaders and participants appreciated our work made the experience incredibly fulfilling. ”
