I have had the most incredible first few days here. I am grateful I decided on this elective and could not be happier with my experience thus far. On Tuesday, Gloria and I joined Shaleen on the palliative outreach trip to small villages around Naggalama. Here, palliative care is not just offered to patients with terminal diseases, but also to those with chronic conditions. We went to see our first patient who had what I believe was Burkitt's lymphoma.
