ECELA Spanish School in Argentina Offers Students Opportunity to Work in Buenos Aires Free Health Fair
Date:2/23/2010

Beginning in June 2010, ECELA will be offering its students the one-of-a-kind opportunity to participate in a Buenos Aires Health Fair while learning Spanish. This program will enable students interested in becoming health care professions to get hands-on experience in a Spanish-speaking environment while providing much-needed medical services to local residents.

(PRWEB) February 23, 2010 -- ECELA Spanish school in Argentina has announced a trailblazing program that will benefit not only its Spanish immersion students, but also Buenos Aires citizens who are in need and have not had the opportunity to receive proper medical attention and advice. Organized jointly with local community centers, the roving health fair will be in a different under-resourced barrio (neighborhood) each week, providing visitors free health education as well as screenings for potential medical issues like diabetes, skin cancer, and glaucoma.

Accepted participants will learn Spanish in Buenos Aires during the morning session and volunteer at the health fair in the afternoons. The month-long program, limited to 24 nursing, premed, and medical students, debuts in June 2010, with a second group of students in July. The fair offers ECELA Spanish students a rare opportunity to attend a Spanish school in Argentina while assisting impoverished Argentines with their medical needs.
