About this trip

Dr. Dolores Battle invites you to join her in Guatemala for a journey beyond compare. Engage in meaningful interaction and collaboration with speech-language, pathology & audiology counterparts to focus on the greatest challenges faced in the provision of services as well as other topics of interest. As you journey across Guatemala, you'll develop an understanding of issues related to providing culturally appropriate, sustainable, collaborative, community-based rehabilitation services. This journey is especially unique as we have partnered with a social enterprise business, Ninos de Guatemala who invest all their profits in the education of over 500 underserved children in Guatemala. Your participation directly supports their mission and you will have an opportunity to visit with the faculty, parents and students at one of the schools. Take part in many hands-on activities including a Guatemalan cooking class, volcano hiking, and visiting archaeological sites and urban centers of the pre-Columbian Mayan civilization. This journey combines the perfect blend of cultural immersion, support of local schools and an introduction to challenges faced with providing care for people with speech-language pathology & audiology concerns from childhood and beyond.
