Winter-Term 2020 Global Health Trip to Ghana

In Winter-Term 2020, a group of Middlebury students will have the opportunity to travel to Ghana for a learning experience with Refugee Outreach Club (ROC) and Summerwood Dental Brigades

This will be the second iteration of this trip (the last one was WT 2018).  The experience will be structured as internships for academic credit.

ROC has several years’ worth of history with this community in Ghana and works in partnership with local health leaders. Summerwood Dental Brigades will be providing dental services.  Students will help to organize the dental and medical clinics (students will obviously not be providing any clinical services), and will also improve sanitation by constructing toilets for community use.

Interested? Come to the Information Session Friday, May 3

Friday, May 3, at 3:30 in Axinn 219

Our goal is to make this experience accessible to everyone, regardless of personal financial circumstances; some scholarship funds will be available.

This trip is offered in partnership with Middlebury College’s Global Health Program.
