Team Guatemala Departs

team guatemala leaving on their tripAssociate Professor Mabel Ezeonwu leads her students on a two-week study abroad program in Guatemala.  This intensive service-learning course is designed to expose students to the policy contexts in which health care is delivered in resource-poor settings with particular emphasis on the indigenous communities of Guatemala. This program aims to expose students to global development, health systems, global health issues and health care delivery in resource-strapped communities. The course utilizes the community as the pedagogical platform and challenges students to view global health care issues holistically in order to understand how in-country health policies are influenced by local and global determinants.
