The students are all Master of Public Health students at Texas Tech Univer-sity Health Sciences Center and traveled to Peru in order to complete an Applied Practice Experience (APE) project.

The students conducted a community assessment that included focus groups, key informant interviews, surveys and water testing. Through these endeavors, the students were able to gather information about the area they were in and gain a better understanding of the community.

 This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP is necessary. Meals will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.

This presentation will not be linked to the additional TTUHSC campuses; however, it is available through Zoom and will be recorded. The recording will be available for checkout through the Office of Global Health.
