The Physician Assistant Studies students of Christian Brothers University (CBU) provided first-aid training for 31 students from Northern Mexico during CBU’s 12th annual Lasallian Language Camp.

The middle school students, ages 11-13, and their chaperones, who are teachers in the De LaSalle schools in Mexico, were part of the CBU community for three weeks.

The students immersed themselves not only in the English language, but also in the native culture and its norms. During their time here in Memphis, the students attended class for three hours in the morning, where they were exposed to intense instruction of the English language, followed by an afternoon homework session, arts and crafts, sports activities and field trips.
