This past week has been a super busy and productive week for the program! A lot was accomplished via communications with our community partners in Zambia 🙂 We now have a tentative itinerary including our daily schedule while in Lusaka! And we also have contact with 11 students at the University of Zambia who seem excited to communicate with our students and whom we hope to meet in Lusaka in May! The cultural exchange between the two groups is off to a good start! We also got to meet our primary contact at the Travel Agency we are working with – Maggy Younger, who has been most helpful with our travel arrangements and answering our many questions!
This week, instead of working so much on details and logistics of the SLHS in Zambia program, I’ll spend time talking about our Zambia program at the annual CAPCSD (Council of Academic Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders) convention in Phoenix! I am excited to share this information with others outside of Purdue!
