Students to Practice Language Skills, Explore Cultural Differences
Five new Global Health Language Labs being offered this semester in Arabic, French, Hindi, Mandarin and Spanish are filled to capacity with a total of 25 Duke students. The half-credit independent study, linked with the course "Introduction to Global Health" taught by Kathryn Whetten, introduces students to cultural sensitivities and differences in the context of global health, as well as to improve their language skills. Because most students in the course go on to complete global health fieldwork, the Labs will help them make the most of their experiences.
My Visit to a DGHI Fieldwork Site in Tanzania
DGHI Assistant Professor Melissa Watt blogged about her trip to the village of Mwika outside of Moshi, where Duke students spent the summer doing global health research and a clinic-based service project. (Read the student blog.) Mwika partners shared with her how pleased they were with the Duke students this summer and the success of their projects. Watt will serve as the faculty mentor for the DGHI Student Research Training site in Tanzania this coming year.
