Jena Dean

A group of four Washburn students will travel to Haiti on April 24 as a part of the International Program’s International Medical Service. The group will be led by Hillary Lolley, radiographer clinical education lecturer, and will stay in Croix-des-Bouquets, a northern suburb in the Port-Au Prince metropolitan area.

The program is a part of the AL 360 course, “The Haitian Experience” which gives students the chance to travel to Haiti while earning three credit hours, in addition to coursework. The trip focuses on the technical skills required in today’s health care, the educational experience of students and the humanitarian approach.

Students will depart for Haiti on April 24 and will return on April 30.
