CAMPAIGN: Lilly Strengthening Communities


Today’s guest blog is by Patricia Toland with our U.S. Managed Healthcare Services team. For the next two weeks, Patricia, a registered nurse, and nine other Lilly Connecting Hearts Abroad Ambassadors will volunteer with the Lilly NCD Partnership in Haryana, India. Patricia’s preparation for the service trip began weeks ago, as she shares here. Stay tuned to LillyPad and Lilly’s Facebook page to learn more about the work of our Lilly Ambassadors and NCD partnership in India.
Three weeks to go: Our Connecting Hearts Abroad trip to Haryana, India, is on my mind.  It’s been fun—and humbling—to see how people have responded. When I went to see my doctor for my pre-trip shots and explained that I was going to India as part of Lilly’s Connecting Hearts Abroad program, he asked several questions and even joked that perhaps he should apply to work at Lilly. And a customer with whom our company is working to improve diabetes care among geographically-dispersed populations is hopeful that my experience in India will provide valuable insight on screening for and treating diabetes among large populations.
