Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, Michigan, U.S.

Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, Michigan, U.S.
Partner: Universidad DeLaSalle Bajio (Mexico)

In a collaborative effort to expose university students from the U.S. and Mexico to the challenges of migration and its impact on personal and community health, Western Michigan University and Universidad DeLaSalle Bajio’s program will bring students from both universities to rural communities in Mexico and migrant communities in Michigan to gain insight into the Mexican immigrant experience, particularly as it relates to nutrition. After exploring issues of migration, cultural influences, and community health, through field visits, students will contextualize their observations, interactions, and overall experience by participating in community service activities with local organizations in the host community, where they will work with community members to explore issues of nutrition, traditional cooking, and exercise.
