In January 2014, over a two week period, Rutgers – New Jersey Medical School (NJMS) faculty and a librarian traveled to Peru, as part of Mini-Med International 2014, and engaged with Peruvian medical schools and health care institutions, including public and private hospitals, orphanages, and rural clinics in and around Huancayo, Peru. Two NJMS students, Andrew Nouri and Ryan Chung, were instrumental in the early phases of this program.

Come hear from participants about their experiences, and learn about upcoming research and clinical opportunities in Peru for Rutgers – NJMS students and faculty, on Wednesday May 21st from noon to 1:00 pm. This event will be held in the Rosemary Gellene Room of the Medical Sciences Building, at the New Jersey Medical School on the Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences campus in Newark.
