Catawba Students in Peru
January 11, 2018
Catawba College students, all members of Volunteers Around the World, traveled to Cusco, Peru for two weeks in December, December 9-23, after fall semester classes concluded. The trip provided the students with the opportunity to work first hand-in-hand with experienced local doctors, performing triage, distributing medications, and teaching local youth about hygiene. The trip also gave students an experience as close to being a practicing physician as is possible before they pursue future careers as nurses, physicians, and other health care professionals.
