32 students from the School of Nursing will act as global scholars this summer in 15 countries, including China, New Guinea, Togo, Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, Malawi, Guatemala, Chile, Dominican Republic, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Portugal, and, for the first time, the United States.
Several students will join ongoing projects like Carolina for Kibera, UNC Project-Malawi, and the Atlantis Project. Others will continue exchange relationships in Uganda, China, Guatemala, and others. Several students will return to their countries of origin to apply new healthcare perspectives.
Melinda Kellner Brock Public Health Nursing Scholar Audrey Boyles will be the first student to study domestically as a Global Health Scholar, working with the volunteer initiative Santa Barbara Street Medicine in California.
