CON faculty and students study abroad in Guatemala
Apr 4, 2018
Drs. Goodman, Hain and Eggenberger, and approximately 20 College of Nursing graduate students and 15 undergraduate students recently visited Guatemala for study abroad experiences. The NP students saw about 800 patients and conducted 150 cervical cancer screenings. The BSN students screened almost 500 children, reviewing height, weight, skin conditions, and heart and lung sounds. Their teeth were painted with fluoride varnish, and they were taught to brush their teeth. They were provided a toothbrush, toothpaste, vitamins and other gifts. Also, approximately 40 people were treated in two foot clinics. FAU College of Nursing faculty and students also installed 12 wood stoves in homes throughout the community. What an experience!
