UNIVERSITY RESPONSE TO COVID-19 :
UB Physician Assistant Students Reap the Benefits of Cultural Immersion in Peru
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 before clinicals 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.
