Lori Northcraft, a DPT/MPH student currently at Emory’s Rollins School of Public Health completing her MPH year, has been selected as 1 of 7 fellows who will be participating in an all-expenses paid trip to Cuernavaca, Mexico this March. She will be visiting the Instituto Nacional de Salud Publica-INSP (National Public Health Institute) of Mexico where she will complete an intensive week of lectures, field site visits and laboratory tours, all in Spanish. Lori will have the opportunity to learning about Mexico’s most pressing public health issues—obesity, HIV/AIDS, and cervical cancer/reproductive health. Additionally, she has requested to particularly learn about rehabilitative and farmworker health issues which will tie into her thesis related to migrant farmworkers (mostly from Mexico) in South Georgia.
Congratulations, Lori! We look forward to hearing about your trip once you return.
