This program is closed.

Program Overview This program's deadline has been changed to 03/14/2023.

Join Dr. Steve Goodwin from the Department of Behavioral Health and Nutrition in New Zealand and Australia for the 2023 Women’s World Cup. Students will study community health systems, and the role of physical activity on health and wellbeing, amongst one of the largest world-wide sporting events today. The program will take place in Hamilton, New Zealand, Brisbane, Australia, and Sydney, Australia.

Students will compare and contrast community health initiatives developed to address the health disparities of the Maori people of New Zealand and the Aboriginal people of Australia. We will also examine other health initiatives in New Zealand and Australia, and examine how they may differ from those offered in the United States.

Participants will be required to secure an "Electronic Travel Authority" (ETA) for both New Zealand and Australia. Both can be done online quickly, at either no cost or for a nominal service fee. Details will be provided.

ACCESSIBILITY: Participants with disabilities should know that accessibility and accommodation in some program locations may differ from the United States. Transit systems and legacy building construction practices may not meet U.S. accessibility standards, and alternative access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites cannot be guaranteed. But UD students with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to study abroad. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
