Learn how water and culture affect health on the Carribean Island of Hispaniola by studying abroad in the Dominican Republic.

This course will introduce students to health and the health care system in the Dominican Republic. Students will have the opportunity to examine how water intersects with culture and health in a variety of settings, including rural and urban areas, bateys (communities of sugar cane cutters), and tourist communities. They will also have the opportunity to experience a variety of health care settings. To better understand and appreciate Dominican culture and its impact on health beliefs and practices, students will take Spanish language classes at a local university.
