Learning global health theory in context



Jen Preston travelled to IUBAT with her husband and daughter in early 2012 to complete her final year practicum for a BSN through Selkirk College/ University of Victoria. She writes, “It is incredible that so many topics I looked into here have tied together: food security, gender issues, breastfeeding, culture, politics and economics. This has been an excellent learning experience. I am finding that while we focus on one seemingly small assignment, endless questions surround each issue. The time that we are here seems to speed up as if we are going to run out of time and not be able to research everything that we observe. I have started to make a list of everything I am interested in, so after this practicum I can continue to explore these issues.”
