This program takes students from the classroom at Nazareth College to indigenous communities in the Sacred Valley of rural Peru. Students will learn health care Spanish, gain cultural competence by working with the disadvantaged Quechua/Spanish population who live in the isolated High Andes, and acquire an international perspective of global health.
This program is made possible in part by a grant of $78,321 from the U.S. Department of Education's Undergraduate International Studies and Foreign Languages program, which provides 49% of the total annual cost. The remaining costs are paid by Nazareth College and students.
