Professor Susan Bandoni will be teaching a study abroad course in  
Ghana this summer that will count towards the Africana/ Black Studies  
minor and major.

Biol. 288/Intd. 288 Global Health in Ghana
Public health is inextricably linked to the ecological and social  
environment. This program introduces students to current ideas and  
issues in public health for a low-income country. Students will visit  
different national parks and wildlife preserves to explore some of the  
ecological challenges, and their ensuing economic and social impacts,  
that face developing countries in the tropics. Travel through four  
regions in Ghana, along with visits to a range of urban neighborhoods  
and rural communities alike, will introduce students to Ghanaian  
culture as well as contemporary problems in public health that Ghana  
faces as a nation. Visits to laboratories at the University of Ghana  
and Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology will provide  
students with an opportunity to meet researches working to solve a  
variety of problems in the field of public health.

The course will be offered under two titles, Biol. 288 and Intd. 288,  
with a biology prerequisite for the Bio course, and no prereqs for the  
Intd.  The lectures and site visits will be the same, and there will  
be one common text on health and development, but then there will be  
some differences in other readings and in the assignments and papers.

Professor Bandoni will hold three information sessions on the  
following dates:

Thurs., Feb. 4, at 7:30 p.m. in ISC 136
Mon., Feb. 8, at 7:30 p.m. in ISC 136
Thurs., Feb. 18, at 7:30 p.m. in ISC 136
