They are working with nurses and doctors at Nyakahanga Hospital. Students are experiencing Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO's) in the community and learning to understand how the new Sustainable Development Goals are being achieved.

They participated in a mobile clinic visit where they administered vaccinations and assisted with antenatal assessments in a remote village.  The experience has provided a great opportunity to immerse themselves in the African culture.  

Check back periodically for updates from Tanzania.
