Former Community Health Technical Advisor at Peace Corps
about 2 years ago
A day in the life of a Peace Corps volunteer is really what you make of it, so volunteers need to be self-motivated. For me, I worked in an urban environment with a non-profit, so there was some structure. As a Community Health Technical Advisor, I taught women to be community health workers. I also developed or organized community health events, like a health fair, a vision clinic, and a first aid course. In addition, I helped establish a basic medical clinic with 2 government-sponsored doctors.
