Alan chaverim, hi friends! My name is Jessica Hoffen and I am a junior studying psychology and global health with the aim of one day soon attending medical school.  Though I sincerely wish I could have participated in all of the IPD Public Health programs, I chose the Public Health in Israel program because it offered me the unique opportunity to explore my interest in the intersections of culture, religion and medicine; and to learn more about a conflict that I hear about all too frequently on the news.  During my three months abroad I struggled with Hebrew, was invited to numerous meals, visited some of the world's holiest sights, and heard more perspectives than I thought were possible in such a small strip of land.
