Health Promotion and Disease Prevention in Belize and Costa Rica
The HSC-N390 Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Programs provide students with numerous experiences to study the intersection of culture and health within the indigenous populations of these countries. Furthermore, students learn the history and evolution of the countries. Working with professors and local non-governmental organizations (NGO) students learn how to use in-country data to create culturally appropriate health promotion programs. Students tour local historical sites as well as the botanical gardens to learn how herbs and plants are used in medicine.
