Neha Zahid, a junior double major in public health and molecular biology at UC Berkeley, traveled to Nepal in the winter of 2016 to teach proper nutrition and oral hygiene, provide basic preventive dental care and emergency treatment, and measure indicators of oral health and nutrition in the local children and families. Hands-on research experiences like these have become a hallmark of the Berkeley undergraduate education, where students are participating in discovery experiences that are the very essence of research.
