March 5, 2018 7 AM

Students and faculty from the SU chemistry department found healing after spending two weeks in Ecuador studying herbal remedies over the winter break.

Students and faculty traveled to Ecuador during the Winterim session at Stevenson.

CHEM 206, offered as a 3-credit, SEE-certified scientific laboratory class, sponsored the trip, which included 16 students and two faculty members. The class, entitled “From Folk Healers to Pharmacies: A Study in Herbal Medicines and Remedies,” sought to accomplish its goals through a hands-on field learning experience.

This trip was done in collaboration with the University of San Francisco de Quito, an institution located in Quito, Ecuador’s capital, which provided the Stevenson contingent with additional resources.
