International Service Learning

Unfortunately due to COVID19, all travel abroad programs were cancelled for 2019 and 2020. CHSP is looking forward to restarting our international health mission trips to Bolivia, Dominican Republic, and Uganda as soon as international travel is deemed safe for students and faculty to resume.

Nursing in Bolivia

In spring 2015, nursing and pre-med students embarked on a health mission trip to Cochabamba, Bolivia under the direction of Dr. Carolynn DeSandre. Over the next ten days, students delivered much needed healthcare services to over 500 men, women, and children in a variety of vulnerable settings, including: family prisons, orphanages, a government funded clinic for the poor, mountain communities, and on the city square in Cochabamba for homeless youth and families. Students facilitated care for many needs including abdominal and musculoskeletal pain, diabetes, hypertension, malnutrition, acute wounds, and family planning. Students worked in interprofessional teams to deliver necessary medical care and health education to Bolivians in need. The healthcare team was honored by the Governor of Cochabamba for their exemplary work and encouraged to return again soon.
