Hello Community,

We are two first-generation Latinas attending the University of California Berkeley, majoring in History of Latin America with a concentration on Public Health [Vanessa], and Anthropology with a Minor in Disability Studies [Melanie]. As seniors we did not want to leave without studying abroad. We were fortunate enough to be accepted into the Dominican Republic Public Health Summer 2014 Program. Throughout our years in college we developed a common passion for public health. This program will allow us to gain a better understanding of health issues affecting the community in Santiago, Dominican Republic and to what extent they are being addressed at both a domestic and political level.
