Global Health Promotion in Guatemala Presentation

You’re invited to join Team Guatemala, 18 students from NHS and IAS under the leadership of Dr. Mabel Ezeonwu, for a presentation about the NHS study abroad program, Global Health Promotion in Guatemala: Health Services Delivery in Resource-poor Settings

Thursday, July 28, 2016 at 11:00 am – 12:30 pm in UW1-210

For two weeks, July 9-22, the group worked side-by-side with local health practitioners and Seattle-based NGO, Guatemala Village Health, to experience the challenges of providing care with minimal resources. The course utilized the community as the pedagogical platform and challenged students to view global health care issues holistically in order to understand how in-country health policies are influenced by local and global determinants or factors.

Returning students will share a presentation of their community-based work in Guatemala and invite the campus to listen to their experiences and findings.
