Subject: Summer 2019 Study Abroad in Bolivia: Global Health Lessons in
Ecotourism and Community Health

Description:
Study Abroad in Bolivia on July 30 - August 11, 2019 and earn 3 credits of
EPIB489A.

You will have an unparalleled opportunity to learn about the difficulties of
promoting health in remote areas with a great biodiversity, with so many
environmental threats, so little economic resources and, at the same time,
such a fantastic indigenous local knowledge. In country, you will meet with
indigenous community members and leading experts in ecohealth, protected
areas management and agroecology as well as health professionals who provide
care in remote areas of the Bolivian Amazon. Activities include learning
about medicinal plants and how indigenous communities maintain their health,
visiting a sustainable golf course, and learning about the work of one of
Bolivia’s most effective conservation organizations. Accommodations include
2 hotels, 3 eco-lodges and 1 home-stay, and transportation will be by plane,
boat and vehicle. This will be an opportunity to go "off-grid" for a few
days--internet and cell phone access will only be available in the hotels at
the beginning and end of the trip.

Attend an information session on Tuesday, 2/19 at 11:30-1:00 in SPH Friedgen
Family Seminar Room 2236. Applications are due Friday, March 1.
