Saja Al-Falahi is a medical doctor from Iraq, a Fulbright grantee, and a master student at Gillings School of Global Public Health. Saja sees the future of the world in the eyes of each whose life she touches, and advocates for health equity. In 2013, she left her family in Baghdad and moved to the south of Iraq to provide medical care to women and children in rural areas. After three years, she left her family again—and, for the first time, her country—to continue her education and to share her stories and experiences with the world.
