Every bit as important, EWH changes the lives of our student volunteers.
Our alumni survey, conducted in 2019, showed the influence of EWH continues in our alumni’s professional and personal lives. Many continue to work in global health and engineering. And they volunteer: 80% of them!
They have assisted refugees, translated for health clinics, provided primary health care as physicians, installed solar panels, reforested, repaired donated medical equipment, and worked in medical missions, rescue missions, and post-disaster rebuilding missions. More than half of our respondents plan to do more global health volunteer work in the near future.
Whether in North Carolina, Oregon, or New York, in Panama, Ethiopia, Nepal, or Ghana, it’s clear that EWH Institute alumni continue to do good work for their communities and the world long after their Institute experience has ended.
