American-Iraq Global Health Virtual Exchange Program for High School Students
American-Iraqi Public Health Teams (12 teams of 10 consisting of eight high school students, four from the US and four from Iraq) and two team captains (one public health student from Boston University and one social work students from Salahaddin University, one of the largest and oldest public universities in Iraq) work together to develop meaningful projects in partnership to address public health issues, including the COVID-19 pandemic. American-Iraqi Public Health Teams will participate in an orientation during the week of July 6th, begin their program and project work for 6 weeks, from July 20th, and present a capstone presentation of their projects during the 7th week, completing the program by August 31st. The program will be conducted entirely online through live Zoom meetings and asynchronous communications via Moodle.
We are looking for 8 enthusiastic high school students in Massachusetts who would like to have a cross-cultural experience, develop 21st century skills in leadership, problem solving, critical thinking. Spend your Summer Making a Difference!
