Learning About Cultural Competency in Peru

Learning About Cultural Competency in PeruDuring the first week of January, six students participated in a medical service campaign in Cusco, Peru. They saw approximately 500 patients.

The trip brought into perspective how resources and access can be very limited, and allowed students to see the importance of cultural competency in practicing patientcentered health care.

The students who participated in the service trip include Sara Brown, Allie Jean Humphrey, Cristina Guimaraes, Deann Tims, Thuy-Tien Ngoc Pham, and Jenny Nguyen.

Students on these mission trips received financial support from the Century Mortar Club Student Activities Committee
