Participants on this Community Engagement Expedition will work in Nicaraguan Coffee Country. We will work in conjunction with the community health center to collect household data on diabetes, obesity and diet. The group will further assist in public health projects in the community by helping install concrete floors, paint homes with insect repellent paint and educate families on point of use water filters. Our partner non-profit Communidad Connect, has a long and lasting relationship in this small community and this allows us to work side-by side with local "Brigadistas" or female community health workers.
