Alabama State University students will have the opportunity to study abroad in Peru. The university has signed an agreement with the Tropical Pathology and Infectious Disease Association in Iquitos, Peru. Under this agreement, students will participate in conferences and hands-on activities such as laboratory work.
Sharron Herron-Williams, interim associate provost for academic affairs at Alabama State, said, “It gives our students the opportunity to have formal training provided by experienced doctors who have specializations that are uncommon in our region. The training they will receive is more advanced and hands-on than the training received by undergraduates in similar programs based in the United States.”
