CAM»xico: How Migration can affect Healing Practices

Through Proyecto Puentes de Salud, Amy Patel will conduct a comparison study of alternative medicine use among Guanajuatans in Central North Carolina and in Guanajuato, Mexico. The project will examine how migration may affect individual health practices and how this in turn may affect health care service and delivery in Central North Carolina.

Note: This award was made as an International Internship Award, which is no longer offered under that name. Those interested in global internships are now encouraged to apply to the Carolina Global Initiative Award.
