Check out Duke Global Health Institute’s “Diaries from the Field” blog where MSc-GH candidate, Laura Borkenhagen, Duke University, reflects on the Sibu Six’s journey in Sarawak, Malaysia thus far.

The Sibu Six are a group of graduate and undergraduate student researchers from Duke University and Duke Kunshan University. They’re conducting several One Health research studies in Sibu and other areas in Malaysia this summer. Borkenhagen’s diary highlights the teams success with sample collection and the details, accompanied with a fragrant aroma, of pig farm sampling.
