Both the medical science and economics science students attended second training sessions in the first week of May.
In their community service, the medical science students give talks on reproductive and sexual health to women in rural communities around San Juan del Sur. In this latest seminar they learned about the risks and complications of teen-age pregnancy and the importance of breastfeeding in the first months of life.
The seminar was given May 4 by Dr. Álvaro Cortez, a specialist in Reproductive and Sexual Health, in collaboration with Dr. Kim Priebe, an obstretrician/gynecologist from the United States.
The economic science students are implementing a reading program in Cebadilla for their service project. Their seminar, on May 10, was about methodologies and didactic tools that are beneficial in teaching reading comprehension and writing to children.
This seminar was given by Professor Freddy Baltodano.
We are pleased that our scholars are working so hard preparing for their community service projects, so that their work can have the maximum impact on the people they are serving.
