PLB: Health Advocacy Program

Project Learn Belize was excited to launch a new joint initiative with the School of Nursing at the University of San Francisco: the first phase of the SON Health Advocacy Program brought participants to Belize in late May of 2010, as part of a team to explore opportunities for ongoing collaboration between the community of Dangriga and the USF School of Nursing.  During this inaugural trip, four nursing students/graduates and a professor of SON presented educational modules, related to health, nutrition and first aid to students and faculty members of Sacred Heart School in Dangriga. Outside of these presentations at the school, the team had several opportunities to dialogue with health & civic leaders of the wider town community.
