In conjunction with the Drexel University WeServe program and the Drexel University School of Public Health, we will be traveling to Gambia (West Africa) this summer to do work on a number of public health projects related to maternal and child health, HIV/AIDS prevention & education, and chronic disease management.

Early Childhood Development

Worldwide, more than 10 million children under age 5 die every year.  Many of these children die of malnutrition due to a lack of access to the nutrition that is necessary for their growing minds and bodies.  The vast majority of children and pregnant women in the Gambia are iodine deficient, which causes severe health and developmental problems.
