The Accra Global Health Program is a six-week summer term program jointly developed by Boston University and Lancaster University’s Accra Global Health Program. The program will provide undergraduate students the opportunity to explore the critical topic of public health in West Africa. Students will explore the relationship between microbiology and the social determinants of health through a course hosted at the newly established Lancaster University Ghana. Through the health sciences practicum, students will see firsthand how public health strategies are implemented on the ground and apply their learning through a classroom component. Students will enhance their learning through field trips and interactions with local hospitals, research institutions, and NGOs. During their time in Accra, students will live in modern dormitory-style, multiple-occupancy rooms located within a short walk from the Lancaster University Ghana campus.
