we discussed the global burden of non-communicable diseases

Week Ending 10/8/10
                I got back to the US this week and have been exhausted!  I made it back in time to make all of my classes this week.  Turns out there were some unforeseen make-up assignments for my week away, but I am now all caught up.  It was really interesting that this week in my global health class we discussed the global burden of non-communicable diseases, which results in a double burden for many developing countries.  This was especially interesting after my trip, where I was able to see how much chronic diseases affect those in developing countries- especially diabetes, hypertension, and mental conditions.
