4.	OPPORTUNITY: Health and Community Study Abroad:
Health disparities within and across countries have widened. The global and local roots of economic disenfranchisement and poor access to effective technical advances and health care resources raise profound questions about who makes decisions about priorities and how.

Participants on the International Honors Program Health and Community program will learn about the many ways that individuals and communities respond to the health consequences of their biologic, ecologic, economic, political, and socio-cultural environments. Students will broaden their global perspective and deepen their skills in critical and comparative thinking, both vital to meeting emerging global health challenges. Programs take place in India, China, and South Africa studying international health issues.

The courses create a foundation for understanding culture and health; the health impacts of globalization; comparative health systems, governance and policy-making; public health problems and strategies; and field-based research methods. The program will give future health care leaders the confidence to ask important questions, analyze alternatives, and set priorities. They will learn to listen to and understand the multiple voices of people in local communities, governing bodies, and non-governmental agencies.

Accommodations: During the Health and Community program, the majority of time will be spent in homestays, although there will be a mix of other group accommodations throughout the semester.

For more information, visit www.ihp.edu . The early deadline to apply is June 1.

5.	ADVISING ANNOUNCEMENT: UF College of Medicine Information Session:
University of Florida College of Medicine representatives will be here at the Academic Advising Center on April 30 from 3:00-4:00pm. They will share with you information about the application process as it pertains to University of Florida College of Medicine.

7.	COURSE INFORMATION: Beginning Sanskrit (NEW POSTING):
Sanskrit is an Indo-European language and has been immensely influential in world history. Its literature disseminated Indian culture throughout Asia in antiquity and continues to attract modern interest because of its importance in the study of religion, literature, philosophy, linguistics, and the arts.

Fall 2007: Beginning Sanskrit I (SRK 1120, T R 11-E1, Mat 5)
Instructor: Michael Gressett

Beginning Sanskrit I is a one year course modeled after first year Sanskrit at the University of California at Berkeley, and uses their primer specifically designed for Western students, Devavanipravesika--"An Introduction to the Sanskrit Language."

The course focuses on learning to read and write Sanskrit's script, and learning its grammar. The immediate emphasis on discussing our translations of an abridged telling of the Ramayana epic in class makes the business of learning an ancient language enjoyable.

Beginning Sanskrit II will be offered Spring 2008.

8.	SCHOLARSHIP / AWARD: Rotary Cultural Ambassadorial Scholarships (NEW POSTING):
The Rotary Foundation offers Cultural Ambassadorial Scholarships for intensive language training and cultural immersion abroad. For more information, visit http://www.rotary.org/foundation/educational/amb_scho/prospect/award/type.html

9.	RESEARCH: InvestiGators:
There are currently research positions being offered with the InvestiGators, dealing primarily with nutrition and metabolism. The InvestiGators is a research-based group comprised of students from various disciplines who are interested in meaningful research. Dedication, teamwork, and self-motivation are all highly emphasized in the Investigators and are essential to participate.   The group is under the direction of Dr. Peggy Borum, PhD., and membership in the InvestiGators offers the opportunity to meet with Dr. Borum regularly. 

The InvestiGators is made up of three teams: the Carnitine Team (research dealing with an amino acid derivative involved in metabolism), the KetoGator Team (pediatric epilepsy research) and the Gator Team (pediatric HIV research). The InvestiGators interview applicants once a semester. For more information on the InvestiGators and each team, please visit: http://borum.ifas.ufl.edu/Investigators/index.html

To learn more about the Investigators, there will be an informal Meet-and-Greet session from 6:00-7:00pm on Thursday, May 17 in the Aquatics Lab Building (APL).

10.	SERVICE: Helping Hands Clinic:
Helping Hands Clinic is looking for pre-health major volunteers to help with weekly clinics. This is a great experience to get hands-on clinical experience. Opportunities will vary based on interest and qualifications. We are looking for all pre-health majors (medicine, nursing, pharmacy, social work, etc). Orientation will be provided.
