July 2019 - I joined my physician wife on a two-week medical mission trip to the Amazon River Valley, organized in partnership with the University of Louisville School of Medicine. Apart from serving villages with extremely limited access to healthcare, the most rewarding aspect for me was meeting many young children who told me their favorite subject in school was math! I wasn't expecting to do math outreach, but took the chance to encourage many children to keep working hard in school, in particular on their math skills.
