My 44-hour journey from Knoxville, TN to Zhengzhou, China was exhausting, but fairly easy and uneventful. During the 16-hour flight from JFK to Guangzhou, I had trouble sleeping due to anticipation of what was to come, which led to a migraine.

The family is rooted in everything we do at Hope Through Healing Hands, and our mission to promote improved quality of life for citizens and communities around the world using health as a currency for peace.
By Senator Bill Frist, MDI’m honored to be traveling in China this week on behalf of Hope Through Healing Hands as a member of the Global Board of Directors for The Nature Conservancy. We will be spending eight days at the intersection of global health and nature, conservation and climate. Climate change disproportionately affects the most vulnerable people in the world, and I’m looking forward to learning more about how we can help both conservation efforts and global health.
I hope you are all doing well back at home. I have really settled in here. I am loving the country and the people more and more each day. Work has been moving very quickly, that is why I have not been posting as often. The KAP study as been finalized and translated into Mongolian and the pilot study for that is currently being worked on. I am hoping that will be accomplished before I leave.
