Yẽ soml –mã (Welcome in Moba)!
My name is Dr. Helen Baker and I am the Coordinator for the Peace Corps Coverdell Fellow Program and for Global and Community Engagement in the LCC at Emory’s Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing. I served as a Community Health and AIDS Prevention Peace Corps Volunteer in Togo from 2007-2009 and then returned to Togo to work as a Peace Corps Response Volunteer from 2015-2016, while completing my doctoral research. During my Coverdell fellowship in nursing school, I worked with low-income older adults and pregnant refugee women --- doing everything from Wii bowling to reconciling medications to teaching refugees how to shop with WIC vouchers. My experience in the Peace Corps and as a Coverdell Fellow changed the way I view and provide health care. It also shaped my research, which focuses on access to sexual and reproductive services. I love working with the Coverdell Fellows at the School of Nursing and I am excited to hear from prospective students. Please contact me with any questions about this fellowship program. Merci!
