About

Since 2011, UVU Nursing students have been traveling to Samoa to assist the country with healthcare initiatives. During 2016, the Director General of the Ministry of Health requested the UVU Team to focus on early childhood development, specifically focusing on well-child checks at the primary schools. 

We will be conducting screenings for Diabetes on adults in Samoa. UVU Nursing faculty and students will be working in tandem with indigenous healthcare clinicians to gather basic health information for approximately 2000 children each year. UVU Students will be engaged using real world contexts within the curriculum and having "hands-on" activities in Samoa that will increase their confidence and professional competence.
