Ghana, January 2009

Dr. Yetsa Tuakli-Wosornu, MPH Student in 2009 (and personal trainer and fitness enthusiast) was able to evaluate the attitudes and activities suYetsa Tuakli-Wosornurrounding regular physical activity and nutrition among mature, church-going women in the cosmopolitan city of Accra, Ghana with support from Alumni Giving.  While she was primarily there to study women, through her interaction with women, pastors, fitness authorities and medical professionals, she ultimately learned much more about the culture context that is defined by clergy and Christianity in an emerging, modern African city that, despite its sparkling new malls and hotels, still prioritizes community and family, connectedness and collective advancement.
