From New Mexico to Bolivia: A profound experience for Rotarians
The Hobbs and Lovington Rotary Clubs of New Mexico have been supporting the implementation of U4C’s featured project in mining communities of Bolivia. In 2012, a delegation of five Rotarians visited Bolivia and the mining communities, working along with the U4C Bolivia Team to assess these communities' needs, specifically in the area of health. In May 2013, two health campaigns were carried out successfully impacting more than 50 families in Quime and Caracoles (La Paz-Bolivia): A Maternal-Infant and Preventive Dental Care.
PhD Students Undertaking Preliminary Research Bolivia

This trip will inform a future study to be designed by the team after meeting and working with these communities. The research team consists of Melissa Torres, MSW - current PhD student at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work - and James Arango - current Masters student at the University of South Florida Graduate Program in Applied Anthropology and College of Public Health.
