The ninth installment of the Language and International Health (L&IH) Symposium brought Keith Groce, Executive Director of Neighborhood Focus, to Clemson’s campus for a presentation to students in February 2016. The semi-annual symposium is a forum to discuss and increase awareness of international health issues, especially those that impact minorities. Mr. Groce described the mission of Neighborhood Focus, which is to provide academic support, spiritual enrichment, and life skills to under-resourced children in Greenville, SC. He also discussed service learning and employment opportunities within the organization. Spanish student and Clemson freshman Stewart Ruddy enjoyed the presentation. “This program is really interesting because it helps at-risk children, mostly of Hispanic origin, succeed in school and social activities,” he said. The next L&IH Symposium will be held in the fall.
