Ghana: Global Health

Public health is inextricably linked to the ecological and social environment.  The health of human populations reflects the ecological and geographic environment.  This program will introduce important ideas in public health and significant biological issues important in global health through planned cultural and ecological excursions in a low-income country.  Site visits will include hospitals and clinics, research laboratories, national parks, and wildlife sanctuaries, and community development projects.  Students from the partner institution, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, will also take part in the program.  This course is ideally suited for students interested in careers in medicine, allied health fields, public health, or environmental science.
