Hello Professor Testa,
I am Professor Ronnie Shaw, University of California Los Angeles African Studies M.A. alum and Executive Director of TheSankofa Center. Founded in 2004, We are an American 501(c)(3) arts-based HIV/AIDS education, prevention, testing, and treatment internship program working throughout the year in Ghana, West Africa under the National AIDS Control Programme.
We recently had University alumnae on our program that recommended we recruit Cabrini College students on our program, so we are reaching out to similarly interested individuals who’d like to be apart of our dynamic program given the wonderfully impacting exchange while promoting global change. Those with an academic interest in artistic expression– dance, drama, music & art, public health, global studies, social welfare, and medicine are encouraged to apply to our program. We fuse artistic expression with health information and provide testing with links to treatment and anti-stigmatization programs using culturally appropriate educational methods- African dance dramas.
Can you please post or forward through email the attached Press Release to students and alumnae of Cabrini College and those interested in international study who may desire this unique artistic public health internship?
