Gearing up for global health


In the face of the tragic earthquake in Haiti this week, we are reminded of the dire circumstances in which many find themselves and the important role that nurses play in delivering health care.

Right now, our students and faculty are prepping for seniors' annual health promotion experiences during spring break week...researching critical health issues in the areas, developing and translating health promotion materials, and gathering vital supplies for basic health care. This year we are returning to Peru, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic (DR). Here is just one inspiring story from one experience last year in the DR. http://www.villanova.edu/nursing/newsevents/news.htm?page=2009_6_16.htm
