Student Trip to Nicaragua

Senior nursing student Chelsea Zeman, juniors Cathy Wingstrom and Paige Snyder, and nursing professor Dr. Amy Cory traveled to Nicaragua in late January gathering information for their undergraduate research project, Between the Volcanoes. The community-based participatory action project aims to improve respiratory health through improved cookstoves. The stoves ventilate smoke from open-fire cooking, out of the house through a chimney. The research team was on site obtaining baseline assessments on families with stoves in the community that require repairs.
