So much has been happening these past three weeks and I haven’t had time to write about it. So here’s an update:
The program continues to be on track with the itinerary slowly taking shape; we have our flight itinerary now and are continuing to work on the daily schedule while in Zambia…
We received a wonderful donation of hearing aids and batteries for the program from Phonak: A big THANK YOU to all who helped with that contribution!
Class # 3 was great with three very informative student presentations on the history of Zambia, Clubfoot and Beit Cure Hospital and PCOE.
The annual convention of the Indiana Speech-Language-Hearing Association was this past week and our presentation on the Zambia program was a huge success! Thanks to Megan, Erikka, Jill and Mel for being the student panelists in that presentation. Their comments were very insightful! Thanks to them!! (Waiting on photo to come….)
And even more good news was received right around convention days:
1) Erikka and Emily will have poster presentations about the SLHS in Zambia 2013 program at the 2nd Annual Academic Community Engagement Poster session on April 15-16
2) Megan’s abstract was accepted and she will have an article published in the Purdue Service Learning Journal
3) Erikka’s photo won 3rd place in the Purdue Study Abroad Photo Contest!! Congratulations to all! :)
And yay – I think we have now collected ALL the forms we need from the students – whew!! :)
Coming up this week: I am doing an “interview” about the program to be posted on a “service-learning you tube channel” I believe!!! More about that in my next post :)
