Title: Information session about Globalization and Community Health in Costa Rica
Date: Wed. Sep 17, 2014
Time: 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Description:

Come meet the Executive director of Monteverde Institute, along with USF's Dr. Romero-Daza and Dr. Himmelgreen to hear about the Globalization and Community Health program in Costa Rica for summer 2015.

The Monteverde Institute is a non-profit founded in 1986, and is located high in the Tilaran Mountains of Costa Rica. Its 38-acre campus forms part of the famous Monteverde Reserve Complex, an area of natural preserves that protect more than 65,000 acres of endangered tropical forest. This location underlines the importance of MVI’s commitment to sustainability.

The institute’s programs are based on the belief that in order to achieve sustainability—both locally and globally—a combination of environmental, social, cultural, economic, and technological factors must be carefully considered. To that end, MVI fosters a synergistic approach that blends international study abroad, applied research and community engagement. Its programs focus on sustainable development, ecotourism, Spanish language and culture, conservation biology, community health, land use planning, integrated water resources and social justice.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to speak to this amazing group of researchers!
