Sophia Vazquez ‘14 with Julie Foudy

I was fortunate enough to attended the Julie Foudy lecture sponsored by the Office of the President. For those of you who do not know, Julie Foudy made the United States Women’s National Soccer Team at age 16 and went on to become a member of the US team in the first ever FIFA Women’s World Cup team in 1991. On top of that, she is also a two-time Olympic Gold Medalist. Now, I would be lying if I said I did not have a poster of this woman and her team in my bedroom as a child. She and her team inspired an entire generation of young girls and started a revolution in the world of women’s sports.

Rocky Mini-Grants Experiences: Global Health Case Competition

The case competition was inspired by students who have traveled to the Mala Valley region of Lima, Peru last summer. The trip, sponsored by the Dartmouth Center for Health Care Delivery Science, exposed students to harmful farming practices and accompanying health problems.

Most farmers in Mala Valley, a region that is highly dependent on agriculture, use conventional farming methods such as potent pesticide to eliminate insects and other threats to crops. As a result, the chemicals endanger the local environment because many farmers do not properly dispose of pesticide containers, allowing agrochemical residue subsequently contaminates water, air and soil. Furthermore, the laws already in place to address the implications of pesticide use are not comprehensive enough to tackle the region’s core problems.
