   Comment on positive features of this program/elective:

    This was a wonderful opportunity to work closely with other UNC students. Taking courses in the
spring, and the days in Honduras spent planning and creating the Charlas were very valuable. Giving the
Charlas in the communities was also a great experience and allowed us to really work on our Spanish, as
well as to give information to the women there and form good relationships with them. Clinic experience
was also very valuable, and it was great to be paired with fourth year students and to have two
attendings.
