Greetings from Yogyakarta. I am Anastasia, a 4th year medical student from Gadjah Mada University (UGM), Indonesia. Medicine has always been a part of my life, and to have an opportunity to be able to study medicine and later on become a doctor is what I truly regard as a blessing. Throughout my years in UGM, we have been constantly exposed to the topic, that is Public Health.

This time around, the syllabus includes health systems and disaster management. Throughout the next 6 weeks, I shall be blogging about materials that I have acquired from my lectures, tutorials and practicals. After all, what good is knowledge if its not shared.

I encourage comments and healthy discussions on topics posted on this blog.

I leave you with a comic to ponder on. Till then.
