The Bahamas trip consists of helping in the clinics and teaching at the schools. The students are placed in clinics through out the island. There are two students placed in Hatchet Bay, three students in Governor’s Harbor, two students in Rock Sound, and two students in Tarpum Bay.
Today, for some of the students was their first day teaching at the Bahamian schools and for some students, it was their second day teaching. Some of the topics that were covered were: Substance abuse, family planning, respiratory, and STDs.
We visited the Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve today in Governor’s Harbor. The Preserve is the first national park on the island of Eleuthera. It is an environmental educational centre as well as a facility for the propogation of native plants and trees.
Until next time,
