Griffith Pharmacy Graduate

Battanbang, Northern Cambodia was the destination for a group of Griffith pharmacy students aiming to bring their skills to disadvantaged communities. Led by third year student Aisha Al Mahdy, the group of 13 Pharmacy students organised a two-week program that saw them providing healthcare to very low resourced communities. 'Unfortunately many chronic ailments go unnoticed in these conditions, so the group provided general medical help, including blood pressure checks and glucose checks, as well as general health and hygiene education,' said Aisha.
