Led by Peter Blair (associate professor of biology and co-director of the Center for Global Health) and Jose Ignacio Pareja (director of the Science and Technology Commons and a native of Peru), the group of 10 students provided diabetes and blood pressure tests, health checks, fluoride treatments and doctor referrals. The program also allowed students to improve their Spanish, learn a little about the culture of Peru, and reflect on the cultural and ethical issues raised by international public health campaigns.
