Merry Christmas and Happy New Year’s Eve! It’s been quite a long time since I’ve written upon return from my last trip to Uganda in June 2018. That wasn’t my intention but life stateside has been busy for me. The Binghamton University School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is hopping with 3 classes in now, which is a total of about 230 students, and I’ve been teaching a lot—and enjoying every minute! However, I am thrilled to let you know I am headed back to Uganda today. What a wonderful way to start the new year, and new decade! It is amazing to realize I have now been working with Makerere University School of Pharmacy in Kampala since 2010, by email, and in person since 2011! I will probably take some time to re-visit the past 8.5 years with you via this blog during this trip. The main purpose of this short, 2-week trip is to lay the groundwork for my next research project and put the finishing touches on 2 papers I’m writing with my Ugandan colleagues. It will be a trip packed full with meetings and work sessions and in between those, I will also be busy preparing my teaching materials for the next semester at Binghamton University. Classes start less than 1 week after I return to the States. For now I’ll say goodbye as my first flight will be boarding soon. I will be arriving in Uganda at 10:30pm their time, which is 2:30pm on New Year’s Day, eastern standard time. I’m looking forward to sharing my journey with you again. Stay tuned to tag along on my adventures!
Safe travels! Looking forward to hearing about your work. Good luck!
It’s exciting to know that you travelled to Uganda my home! I love the passion you have for work out there. I am one of the many pharmacists you’ve inspired and I look forward to seeing pictures and hearing more about your trip.
I’ll pray for a safe and wonderful stay while there. May God bless the works of your hands.
