Abstract: Presenter: Glenn Ames, Director, Office of International Public Service and Outreach, The University of Georgia. Abstract: The goal of the Learn and Serve Hispanic Health Care Pilot Program is to improve access to reliable health care information for the 225 families of Pinewood Estates, while at the same time providing service-learning opportunities for UGA students. This goal is accomplished through the coordination and delivery of four health care seminars each semester, targeted at the primarily (98%) Mexican community of Pinewood Estates. Current seminars include dental care and oral hygiene, diabetes and hypertension, preparing for a visit to the doctor, and worksite safety, which are critical needs identified within the community.
