This innovative new internship location, in collaboration with the University of Brasilia, provides excellent opportunities for international learning as students focus on a variety of public health issues from tropical diseases to outdoor air pollution exposures. Students will work directly with researchers from the University of Brasilia regarding continued field work, data gathering, and data analysis on these projects. Students will also attend classes at the University of Brasilia including study of Brazilian culture and Portuguese language, environmental health, tropical diseases and vector-borne (insect) disease transmission. A cultural and environmental health excursion with Dr. Thygerson is planned for Rio de Janeiro.
