Join Other Scholars of Public Health in the Dominican Republic in January

Join other scholars of public health in the Dominican Republic in January!

CIEE, the world leader in international education and exchange, would like to invite you to participate in a seminar in the Dominican Republic this January, entitled “The State of Public Health in the Dominican Republic: A Caribbean Case Study” led by Dr. David Simmons, an award-winning professor of anthropology and public health. Dr. Simmons is an associate professor at the University of South Carolina. He received his PhD from Michigan State University and also completed a three-year National Science Foundation Postdoc at Harvard Medical School in the department of social medicine program in infectious disease and social change.

During this program, Dr. Simmons will lead interactive exercises, discussions, and site visits in Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic. You will visit local NGOs, a public health organization on a Haitian Batey, and a rural village as well as talk with local practitioners and health promoters. What better way to learn about the current situation in the Dominican Republic than to see for yourself?

We will be accepting applications for this program until November 1, so secure your space now!

For more information, please contact MS. Erin Santana, Senior Manager of International Faculty Development Seminars at esantana@ciee.org.
