Friday, July 15, 2011. Storm Lake Pilot Tribune. Miguel Munoz-Gomez, a junior biology and Spanish major from Storm Lake, is in Cuba to compare its health care system to the American system.
He is performing missionary work through Caribbean Medical Transport, delivering medical equipment to different facilities in need and exploring medical care in urban and rural settings. Miguel will have the opportunity to meet with two well-known Cuban physicians, Dr. Gilberto Fleites in Havana and Dr. Roger Garcia in Guantanamo. His trip is supported in part by a J. Leslie Rollins Fellowship from BVU.
Internship and research experiences are an integral part of the BVU educational opportunity. Valuable for networking and intellectual growth, they provide lessons students can carry back to the classroom and into their future careers.
