Program:  Leah Vriesman, about her selection as a Fulbright Scholar and her year abroad in Germany


Leah started her talk saying that she became acquainted with a University in Germany, the Hochschule Neu Ulm, due to hosting for many years a group of physicians studying for their MBA wanting to learn about the US Healthcare System.  Through this connection, she was invited to spend a year there teaching, so she decided to pursue a Fulbright Scholar's award and received one of 10 granted in the field of Public and Global Health in 2010-2011.  In addition to being in Germany, she traveled to East Africa 3 times with this same German University to teach a group of African physicians from 5 countries about healthcare administra! tion.  Over the course of the year, she and her family traveled e xtensively, lessened stress and the U.S. lifestyle by not owning a TV or car, and made lifelong friends and memories.
