EGH in Haiti

 

  • During Summer A, the Director of the Bachelor of Public Health program, Dr. Liz Wood, took eight UF students from different disciplines to embark on UF’s first undergraduate study abroad program in Haiti.
  • Students were given a crash course in field research methods that included quantitative and qualitative methods.
  • Each student gained valuable research skills in conducting surveys, data cleaning and analysis, and participating in ethnographic interviews.
  • In addition to learning and implementing research skills, students traveled to Jacmel (Gainesville’s sister city in Haiti) as well as various beaches to enjoy the country’s culture and landscape.
