Ely Rotary Club was visited by a member from across the pond for a discussion on her work with diseases and how to improve the health of the country.
Sundus Ahmed, an American Rotary International Global Grant Scholar, stopped by the club to chat with members about epidemiology – the studying of patterns and trends in diseases across populations.
The scholar is currently reading for an MPhil in Public Health degree at Fitzwilliam College at the University of Cambridge.
She said: “I hope to begin medical school next year and ultimately be a doctor pursuing research and public health work as well.
“So far, I have been having an amazing experience at Cambridge. My course keeps me very busy, but in the little free time I have I enjoy rowing for my college, attending formal halls, and travelling as much as I can.”
