Eight of our MPH students had the special opportunity to provide health education for the San Salvador, Bahamas community in May! They spent 10 days on the island conducting different activities and projects for the members that live there. The students were able to provide nutrition education and how to grow their own herbs to elementary school students, spoke to over 80 community members at their planting for prevention event and conducted water testing at various sites on the island! They were able to provide educational materials related to diabetes and heart disease as well as information on how to grow their own food at home to those that came to the community event! We are so proud of our students and look forward to continuing to provide services for the community of San Salvador! Thank you to UTC MPH Professor Dr. Dawn Ford for leading the charge and thank you to the Gerace Research Center for allowing us to stay on their campus in San Salvador!
