Pocket Bass Goes to Peru! Spring Break 2020

It would be an understatement to say that Spring Break hit a little different this year. Uncertainty and angst was experienced by students across all university campuses. But, for one of the courses taught at our Center, this Spring Break was unique

and transformative. Our Bass Connections class, Pocket Colposcope: Analysis of Bringing Elements of Referral Services to Community Care, went to Peru just days before travel bans were put in place around the world. Our students evaluated the use of the cervical cancer self-screening device, Callascope, via interviews with the HOPE Ladies. Hear the stories directly from our students.

Happy Memorial Day
