Meet Chelsea Uwase, B2R Scholar and rising junior at the University of Chicago, who interned at University of Global Health-Equity in the Vice Chancellor’s Office. Chelsea spent the summer conducting a research project to study the effects of climate change on vulnerable populations, more specifically pregnant women and young kids in developing countries. 

“Working at the University of Global Health Equity, whose drive is to deliver care to the most vulnerable people in our communities, is a constant reminder that it is possible to think about systems where each and every one is included, even the ones that live in remote, under-resourced areas.”

She hopes that within the next five years she will be serving her community and contributing to solving the challenges that the health system in Rwanda is currently facing. 

Chelsea is pursuing a Global Studies major with a concentration on Governance and Affiliations, and Cultures At Work.
