Getting Started

This morning I got to meet Dr. Satpathy, my preceptor here at AIPH.  Dr. Panigrahi held a meeting where I met a lot of the field workers, etc.  The meeting went well; we discussed how we would get started in the next couple of days.  I went to the hospital this afternoon; it was very interesting-I guess I didn’t really know what to expect.  I didn’t get a chance to take pictures, I was only there for an hour or so to figure out where our study IDs were located (different sectors).  I’m excited to get started going to the villages!  It has been a great day, though I still haven’t gotten used to the time change.  I will be going to be early tonight.  I’m being fed well and taken care of.  AIPH is super hospitable. Dr. Margalit was right when she said they will not let me do anything.  I try to take my tray after I am done eating to the kitchen, even if I am half way there, the building “manager” makes me take it back to the table so he can take care of it.  He is very nice and always smiles!  Sorry if I have not gotten back to you via internet, the internet is not the best here, but I have no complaints!  Hope you all are well :)
