“It’s not like studying abroad; it’s not like going on vacation ... it’s completely different than that. I don’t think you can fully understand poverty in such a way unless you’ve actually seen it, and experienced it, and been there.”
- Lane Erickson, UNC Senior

Map of HondurasStudents and professors from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill spent their summers conducting nutritional research in the rural region of Intibuca, Honduras.
