“Of course it is sad to see that due to budget cuts . . . a lot of women will be unable to get the assistance . . . they need and that like everything in this society it all comes down to the almighty dollar. I enjoyed my day; I was asked if I would be interested in coming to work for the health department, which was funny. So overall it was a good experience.”

Student Reflections, cont’d

“I really enjoyed talking with both the Director and the women, and getting to see for myself the living situation and conditions of this program that are offered to them. This experience, in particular, was more enjoyable for me than working in the medical clinic because it was more hands on with the group of people I am looking to evaluate.”
