Hispanic Studies major Roxana Fatemizadeh went on a HuMED trip this summer to Kpando, Ghana.  The team worked in Margaret Marquart Hospital (mainly with the public health unit).  Most of the doctors were on 2-year rotations from Cuba and didn't speak English, so even in Ghana, her Spanish was quite useful in communicating!
