Matthew D. Hing
While still an undergraduate at the University of Notre Dame, Matthew D. Hing engaged directly with complex global health problems in the developing world. In Puebla, Mexico, Matthew completed an internship at an HIV/AIDS clinic and shadowed medical students at public hospitals to study surgery and obstetrics. During an internship in Jinotepe, Nicaragua, he worked with staff members at a small, government-run clinic to establish a program to provide improved services and education for pregnant women in remote areas. The program empowered women to act as healthcare providers within their communities.
