She traveled to Munich, Germany with two of her classmates to pursue this project during the spring break of 2018. Pil has also received grants from the Hesburgh-Yusko Scholars Program, the Glynn Family Honors Program, and the Flatley Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement (CUSE) to travel to Limpopo and Mpumalanga, South Africa during the summer of 2018 to facilitate educational workshops with rural healthcare workers on malaria transmission, prevention, and treatment.
