I have recently been accepted to participate in a University of Georgia service-learning experience in Accra, Ghana from June 18 to July 30, 2012. This program focuses on health and nutrition issues in this developing nation. While in Ghana, we will be visiting hospitals and orphanages, conducting health screenings, observing surgeries in different specializations, and bringing nutrition education to the Ghanaian population. The knowledge we have taken from our nutrition science courses will be applied to real world situations that immerse each of us in the rich culture of Ghana. Your sponsorship will allow me to participate in this study abroad experience as well as bring much-needed healthcare to Ghana. I greatly appreciate all your assistance!!!
