We are very grateful for our GIS Alumni who have kindly kept in touch in order to share their experiences with us, despite their demanding roles and circumstances. Thanks to them we have heard what it’s like to work on the frontline of healthcare in multiple countries and settings, along with their kind advice on staying safe and healthy during this time.
