Morgan Lantz, a junior nursing major at Huntington (Ind.) University, went on a cross-cultural encounter to the Bahamas last week to volunteer in a nation of need, and learn from the experiences.
A 2008 graduate of Pettisville High School, she is the daughter of Tim and Theresa.
The trip is a part of an interdepartmental January Term course called “Cross- Cultural Encounter in the Bahamas.”
The first week of class was spent on campus, where students learned about the Bahamian and Haitian people who are the recipients of their service while in Nassau, Bahamas.
Cultural and behavioral expectations also were covered as well as the preparation of medical and evangelical materials. They also practiced sharing personal faith stories.
The second part of the experience took place in the Bahamas. Nursing students conducted medical assessments and provided medical care. This provided nursing candidates with the training of practical skills while providing much needed care to relocated refugees and other people in poverty.
