Building handwashing stations in schools and homes. Educating expectant mothers on nutrition, birth spacing and warning signs during pregnancy. Preparing health education programs for local communities. It’s all in a days work for Denise Aiyedatiwa, who has decided to put her public health degree to good work as a Peace Corps Community Health Extension Agent stationed in Khmer, Cambodia—hence the name of her blog, Khmerawaywithme.wordpress.com.
Born in Minnesota to Nigerian parents, Aiyedatiwa came to FIU Stempel College to earn a Master of Public Health with a Specialization in Health Promotion & Disease Prevention. Check out her blog and take a peek into the life of a Peace Corp volunteer who is living the phrase, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
