For an action packed 8-days, we’ll step out of the classroom and into the complex world of healthcare in Guatemala’s western highlands. From big bustling cities to small rural communities, we’ll live and learn alongside local health practitioners, administrators and activists. We’ll visit frontline nurses, ride along with volunteer responders and meet with underserved patients. We’ll examine the gaps in public service delivery and explore how a diverse village of local community, business, and non-profit actors are stepping in to fill them.
So, get ready to challenge yourself with service learning, cultural immersion and adventure. This is our chance to explore healthcare in a new and different landscape while reflecting on the challenges facing practitioners in Guatemala and back home in Canada.
