In March, CEDEI received a visit from Dr. Sandy Sherman of The Food Trust in Philadelphia, a non-profit organization that works to improve access to and information about nutritious foods.  Dr. Sherman, an expert in nutrition education, visited CEDEI School and gave presentations at the Ministry of Public Health and the Ministry of Education to Ecuadorian nutritionists.

She continues to be involved in CEDEI’s work as a mentor for student interns.  She will be helping to guide the work of master’s student Emma Kane of Emory University, who is working in Cuenca on a nutrition education project.  This Global Field Experience project is part of her Master’s degree in Public Health.
