Disease Prevention is Focus of NYIT Global Health Team in El Salvador

Perquín, El Salvador (July 12, 2012) — A team from the NYIT Center for Global Health is visiting El Salvador from July 8 to 28 to evaluate the use of electrocardiogram (EKG) analysis in screening patients for Chagas disease, a neglected tropical disease that is prevalent in many parts of the world.

"We're very excited that the research finally got approved- this took seven months of hard work, and Dr. Passafaro and myself, along with the rest of the team, are ecstatic," said Jasmine Beria, a third-year medical student and academic medical scholar at the university.

Physicians and students from NYIT's College of Osteopathic Medicine and School of Health Professions will also work with local health providers in El Salvador to provide clinical services, conduct health fairs, and teach oral health, health promotion and disease prevention to students at the El Volcan School in Morazán.
