Last weekend, we went to the wedding of Lidia's (our translator) brother. The girls wore traditional Mayan clothing bearing the design that is the signature of San Juan, the town that Lidia is from. We are so grateful to have such wonderful community partners that have welcomed us into their culture!

Lidia (left) and Micaela (right) are my Guatemalan colleagues. They serve as our mediators with the community members by translating between Spanish and Katchikel. Also, they both have a wide range of experiences that are important to the success of both our research and education projects. Micaela and Lidia both kindly agreed to model their traditional Mayan clothing. The outfit consists of a Huipil (blouse), wrap around falda (skirt) and multi-patterned fajas (belts).

Our research is focused on determining the correlation between malnutrition, stunted growth and the cognitive status of the children within the Mayan population. In addition, the Guatemalan SRT team also teaches dental and personal hygiene in the local schools. Here, my teammate and I are playing dental hygiene games with some of the students in Santa Cruz La Laguna. #dukeiseverywhere #guatemala #srt2015 #dukestudents #DGHI
