Study Abroad: Learning by serving the local community in Costa Rica

Texas State DPT and undergraduate students traveled to Atenas, Costa Rica, in January 2019 to participate in a service learning study abroad program.  Atenas is a small town located 30 minutes outside of San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica.  To maximize their cultural experience, students lived with host families in the local community.  As part of their educational experience, students learned about Costa Rican recreational activities and nutrition.
