The Latin American and Caribbean Student Health Organization (LAC Health) and the greater Harvard School of Public Health community, generously donated funds to Globe Aware to buy medical supplies for the medical clinic in San Pedro de Casta, Peru. To raise these funds, LAC Health engaged in a week long sale of handmade Peruvian jewelry to the students and faculty at the Harvard School of Public Health.
LAC Health is a student organization aimed at promoting, analyzing, and resolving health problems affecting Latin America and the Caribbean.
Our objectives are:
- To increase awareness throughout the Harvard community of health problems effecting the countries of Latin America And the Caribbean;
- To promote healthy practices and give exposure to successful health programs unique to LAC;
- To create an arena for raising concerns and discussing issues about public health problems and policies with experts from LAC;
- To create an informal setting/environment for all students interested in making LAC a healthier place to share experiences, ideas and concerns with fellow students and faculty.
