Before your time abroad, you will attend classes that will not only educate you on Mexican history, but will also prepare you for communicating with your host communities and to equip you for this project generally, including learning more about several public health issues that the city and country are facing.

During your time in Mexico, you will be exposed to the specific issues affecting the local communities and will assist in raising awareness of their challenges. All participants will take UC 275 for 3 credits, which begins in the winter term and extends into the fall.
