Quoted: Lisa Adams on U.S. Students Traveling to Do Good

“Now, the challenge is try to unlearn all the socialization that to this point has brought you academic accolades. You must resist the temptation to share every great thought or idea you have. You must switch into listener mode,” says the Geisel School of Medicine’s Lisa Adams in a Washington Post opinion piece about American students going to poor countries to do good works.

Adams is an associate professor of medicine and of community and family medicine and the associate dean for global health at Geisel.
