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. Ghana is one of the safest places to study abroad. Studying
abroad can help with graduating early, offsetting the cost, and this
experience has helped many students clarify their goals.

Information sessions are scheduled for:

Feb. 5 at 4:00, CU 324 (after the Study Abroad Fair)

Feb. 12 at 2:30, ISC 131

In addition, you can also visit office hours Mondays 2:30-3:20 or
Wednesdays+Fridays 10:30-11:20 in ISC 257.

*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

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.

More information, including cost, is available on the Geneseo Study Abroad
website, or from Susan Bandoni Muench (bandoni at geneseo.edu).
