There are two upcoming information sessions scheduled for Biol. 344,
Biology and Global Health, this summer’s study abroad program in Ghana in
West Africa. Come learn about this opportunity before Fall Break so you can
discuss it with your family then. Ghana is one of the safest destinations
for study abroad.

Information sessions are scheduled for:

Nov. 13, ISC 136

Nov. 15, Erwin 217 (Study Abroad conference room)

*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 2019.  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 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. This course is an excellent fit for students
interested in health professions or in environmental or biomedical sciences.
More information, including cost, is available on the Geneseo Study Abroad
website, or from Susan Bandoni Muench (bandoni at geneseo.edu)
