Earn credits toward your major/minor while studying abroad in Africa!

Wed. October 18 at 7:00 pm in ISC 137 there will be an information session
for Biol. 344, Biology and Global Health, this summer’s study abroad
program in Ghana in West Africa.  Dates for the program this year are
June-July 2.

*Biol. 344, Biology and Global Health:* Earn 300-level elective and
laboratory credit toward the Biology major and minor while studying abroad
in West Africa in the summer of 2017.  This class will introduce students to
public health and environmental issues and their intersection in a lower
middle-income country.  Prerequisites: Biol. 117 & 119

The approach taken in this course is largely experiential and applied, and
site visits will include schools, hospitals, businesses, farms, markets,
national parks, wildlife sanctuaries, and community development
projects.  Embedded in the course is a research experience working with
neglected tropical diseases in a marginalized community on the outskirts of
the capital city in conjunction with a public health research laboratory at
the University of Ghana.

More information, including cost, is available on the Geneseo Study Abroad
web site, or from Susan Bandoni Muench (bandoni at geneseo.edu) or Emily
Froome (froome at geneseo.edu).  The cost worksheet for this program is now
available online on the Study Abroad web site.  The program fee includes
all accommodation, transportation, and class activities as well as many
meals.  Additional purchases, whether food, souvenirs or gifts, are
economical, due to the low cost of living in Ghana relative to the US.
