Community Health and Environmental Education Programs

Project Info:

Through a partnership between Traction, the University of Washington Global2Local Nursing Scholars, and the Universidad Nacional de la Amazonia Peruana, yearly community health and environmental education programs have been implemented in Claverito. Programs include an Environmental Education Fair, a Public Health and Hygiene Fair, and a Plant Maintenance and Cultivation Workshop. These programs provide hands-on learning catered to both children and adults of all education levels, and display the results of the InterACTION Labs studies so residents can learn about the impact the built environment interventions have had on their health.
