UVA in Guatemala: Engineering & Public Health

Deadline approaching! Applications due March 1st. 

The course focuses on different aspects of Public Health, ranging from infrastructure, health care, potable water, sanitation, the environment, and education, etc. and examines how contextual factors like economy, politics, culture and history (pre-Hispanic Maya, Colonial, and Post-Colonial), and globalization influence those Public Health aspects. Given the transdisciplinarity of Public Health, this program brings together multiple UVA schools-Medicine, Nursing, Engineering, Education, and College of Arts & Sciences. This course is led by 3 UVA faculty members from multiple disciplines. 

This program is open to all UVA undergraduates, particularly those interested in Public Health, Engineering, global development issues, Central America, and those considering health-related careers.
