literally without a country, essentially living as slaves in the Dominican
Republic and without the rights of citizenship there or in their native
country Haiti.
The trip, under the direction of Dr. Lois Grau, chair of Health Systems
and Policy, is part of a course offered at the school. Students help with
projects ranging from parasite control programs and health education
workshops, to distributing donated medicines, vitamin supplements, food
and clothing at makeshift health clinics. All of the students keep a journal
of their daily experiences.

OUR MISSION: “The UMDNJ–School of Public Health is a statewide,
multi–institutional, multi–campus scholarly community dedicated to
improving the health of diverse populations in New Jersey and
elsewhere through collaborative teaching, research, and service.”
