Who can attend?
Attend this online info session to learn more about this unique intersession abroad opportunity in Uganda, led by Dr. Mieka Smart (Michigan State University) and Dr. Roland Thorpe (Bloomberg School of Public Health) and offered in partnership with Uganda's Makerere University.
The program will take place from January 3-26, 2019 and explore the health and education programs serving Ugandan children. Students will learn about the strengths and challenges faced by urban and rural child health and education initiatives in Uganda. After an orientation in Kampala, students will spend a week in a homestay near the Rakai Health Sciences Program, where they will focus on health and education in rural Uganda; then spend time in an urban setting in Kampala, the country's capital, for hospital and school tours, guest lectures and student-driven site visits. The course will also incorporate a safari experience.
Open to Hopkins undergraduates of all years and majors, the course confers 3 (S) credits and fulfills the Applied Experience requirement for Public Health Studies majors.
