Welcome to the HHPA 398: Island Health Care: Type 2 Diabetes in the Bahamas class blog!
This blog is a place for the students and faculty to share their thoughts and experiences leading up to, on and after their month-long excursion to the Bahamas with parents, family and friends back home. This Linfield College January term course provides students with the opportunity to interact with Bahamian people and to learn about health related challenges on the islands of the Bahamas.
In 2012, Janet and Jay lead the first group of Linfield College “Bahamacats” to the Bahamas and are excited for the new experiences that the 2014 class will bring!
Check the blog frequently for updated posts and pictures from the trip!
