Research at UB
The University of Bridgeport is growing as a research enterprise amidst a diversity of interdisciplinary academic programs and an increasing number of research labs designed to support collaborative research endeavors. These endeavors highlight our role as a think tank for new ventures and a 21st century learning center, with career-oriented, hands-on offerings in the world of STEM-oriented markets, emerging interdisciplinary fields, and international programming.
From January 19-26, 10 UB Physician Assistant students traveled to Cusco, Peru for an eye-opening learning experience. Under the oversight of Adjunct Professor Dr. Monica Lockwood, they undertook this trip as part of an optional educational lab that would lay foundations for capstone course projects, a part of their final semester that is now underway.
In Peru they visited several orphanages, women’s shelters and a more remote town, where they conducted sessions focused on health and wellness. They covered topics ranging from hygiene to exercise.
