Earlham College has once again funded international travel experiences for students pursuing careers in public health as part of a continuing partnership in Latin America.

Earlier this summer, nine Earlhamites, a majority of whom have never traveled outside of the United States, worked alongside medical professionals from the Foundation for the International Medical Relief for Children (FIMRC) across Costa Rica. FIMRC and faculty mentors from Earlham prepared the team of students to participate in public health campaigns, working at mobile clinics and after-school centers to support families from underrepresented populations, including Nicaraguan refugees.
