Greetings from Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic!
After a very long day of travel, fourteen nursing students and I arrived to begin a nine-day, international-travel experience, Nutrition and Health in the Dominican Republic. Students will assess growth, nutrition, and health status of children served by Dove Missions, a private, non-profit, charitable organization committed to serving at-risk children in Puerto Plata. This experience provides students an opportunity to apply knowledge and skills from their discipline in a global setting while serving others and expanding their view of the world. We invite you to follow along in our journey and share in this incredible experience.
