    Movement of Youth mentor and NCCU Site Director Dominique Littles was recently accepted into the Introduction to Clinical Pathology and Basic Science of Infectious Tropical Disease Medical Internship. She will be leaving for Peru on Dec. 12 to work in the medical field in the city of Cusco. During her ten days there, Dominique will be participating in clinical and lab rotations, attending lectures on common diseases infecting the citizens of Peru and exploring the jungles of the area. She will also be working on ten case studies that are considered “homework” during her time there. Dominique will be traveling alongside Dr. Lane Rolling, M.D. and the Tropical Pathology and Infectious Disease Association.

    Dominique is a junior at North Carolina Central University majoring in biology with a concentration in pre-med. She says that she has always been interested in working in the medical field and traveling to different parts of the world to help others. While in Peru, Dominique hopes to gain reassurance as to why she chose to be a biology/ pre-med major. Dominique says that she has battled with health issues in the past and wants to be able to help people who may have similar experiences.
