 For 10 students in Humber's nursing, practical nursing and early childhood education--advanced studies in special needs programs, this year's Reading Week was one they'll never forget.

The team travelled to an orphanage in Guatemala, accompanied by Humber nursing professor Francisca Burg-Feret, a pediatrician and a family physician, where they helped perform health assessments on the children at the orphanage. They also travelled to remote areas of the country to hold a series of health clinics.
