Through Salybia Mission Project, Medical Students Bring Health Education to Youth

February 19, 2014

At the invitation of the Dominican Youth Development Division, members of the Ross University School of Medicine’s (RUSM) Salybia Mission Project, a student organization, visited the Kalinago territory to participate in an event to educate youth about sexually transmitted diseases. The RUSM students’ presentation, on Feb. 15, 2014, included information about the misconceptions concerning STDs, signs and symptoms, prevention, and treatment options available to those who become infected. The event was featured in Dominica News Online.

The Salybia Mission Project, according to its website, “is devoted to providing much needed medical care to the indigenous population of Dominica, the Carib Indians, also known as the Kalinago.”
