Participating in Field methods in Anthropology and International Development with SEACO has been a highlight of my university experience to date. This is with thanks to the immense professionalism and courteous nature in which the SEACO staff conducted themselves. SEACO’s vast data collection is validated through the systematic checks and balances the staff employ when gathering information. The staff at SEACO went above and beyond to ensure myself and my peers were able to effectively engage with community members in Segamat, Malaysia. Additionally, the friendly and outgoing nature of the SEACO staff made our fieldwork immensely enjoyable. From community engagement, to translational work, to data collection, SEACO and its staff have fostered invaluable relationships within the communities it researches in.  Such an environment allows for researchers to directly engage with community members and collect valuable medical and anthropological data to contribute towards specific research topics.
