Public Health in Mexico

Project: Research project

Project Details


The Office of International Program Development (IPD) at Northwestern University (NU) will redesign its Public Health in Mexico (PHM) summer study abroad program at Universidad Panamericana (Panamericana) in Mexico City. The PHM program, one of NU’s first specially-designed programs, served as a model for the University’s subsequent Global Health programs but was suspended between 2009 and 2014 due to a U.S. Department of State Travel Alert.

The program will be reinstated in 2015 and, inspired by the 100,000 Strong in the Americas call for proposals, introduce a faculty-supervised research component in which Northwestern and Panamericana students work together on the Northwestern campus and in Mexico City. IPD proposes to use 100,000 Strong in the Americas funds to increase the number of students participating in study abroad in the U.S. and Mexico by supporting student travel to, from, and within the two countries. Specifically, funds would cover all program expenses (airfare, housing, meals and local travel) for five Panamericana students visiting NU in Spring 2015, and airfare for all NU students enrolled in the Summer 2015 PHM program at Panamericana.
