Denise Aiyedatiwa helps Cambodians learn the importance of sanitation and handwashing

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.”
