A Week in Peru: Students Share Public Health Tools with a Mountain Village

In March 2010, eight Boston University School of Public Health students spent a week volunteering in [...]Treinta de Mayo, Peru, putting into practice what they have learned in the classroom.

In their short time in Treinta de Mayo, the students held free health screenings for residents and led workshops on sexual health, dental health and hygiene for young children, and maternal and child healthcare. The trip was a collaboration between BUSPH and BU School of Medicine, with five medical students rounding out the volunteer group.
