During our three game drives, I think Jeff and I saw more of God’s wild creatures than ever I saw before on one trip. Here are some more pictures of the magnificent animal sightings.

As I write this, I am getting ready to leave Uganda but this time I am looking forward to returning in just 4 weeks to continue my work with the faculty at Makerere University School of Pharmacy and with the Pharmacists and Interns at Mulago National Referral Hospital. It is so nice to be able to assure my in-country partners that I’m not leaving them for long and that when I come back, I’ll bring even more curricular content that I have developed to help the students learn the Pharmaceutical Care Skills to help them make a positive impact on patient care. So, stayed tuned and in 1 month, look for more Ugandan adventures from my experiences going Out of the Pharmacy Classroom and Into Africa!
