MEXICAN STUDENTS PRESENTED WITH UMH ACADEMIC OPPORTUNITIES

The Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH) presented its undergraduate-, master-, and doctoral-level educational opportunities to hundreds of Mexican students during the Study in Spain fair, held November 8-9 at the Casa de España in Mexico City, which gathered more than 40 Spanish universities.

Over two days, Deputy Vice Rector for International Relations, José Luis González, and Agustín Mingorance, from the Service of Communication, resolved doubts raised by hundreds of Mexican students who stopped by the UMH booth. Many of these students were able to “visit” this university with virtual reality headsets that offered spectacular 360o views of the UMH.

Many students also participated in a drawing for two UMH baseball-inspired jackets. In addition to meeting with students, and to strengthen links with Mexican institutions, internationalization representatives from Mexican institutions also received first-hand information about the Miguel Hernández University.

The fair was inaugurated by the Ambassador of Spain to Mexico, Juan López-Dóriga, a collaborator from the Spanish Service for the Internationalization of Education (SEPIE), Manuel Lucena, and the General Secretary of the Ministry of Education for Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean, Valenciano Luis Cerdán, who was particularly interested in hearing about the internationalization plans the UMH has in store for Mexico.

DEVELOPMENT COOPERATION PROJECT ADDRESSES CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE IN NICARAGUA

The Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH), through the Development Cooperation and Volunteerism Area of the Vice Rectorate for International Relations, is engaged in the Training and Education on Prevention and Diagnosis of Environmental Factors and Health in Nicaragua project. This work aims to improve the capabilities of Nicaragua to address chronic kidney disease, an environmental health problem that affects all of Central America.

Since October, researcher and physician from the Medical Area of the National Autonomous University of Nicaragua and Center for Investigation on Health, Work and Environment, Ariel Arias, has been working on the project at the UMH. These efforts are providing him with the technical expertise for early detection that enable understanding and diagnosing that disease’s primary causes, to subsequently pass on strategies and methodologies in Nicaragua and its surrounding countries. The project arose through collaboration with Nicaraguan investigator, Roberto Ruiz, who completed his PhD at the UMH, and is currently a researcher at this university’s Institute of Bioengineering.

On November 8, UMH Professor Emeritus and that project’s coordinator, Eugenio Vilanova, along with investigators Ariel Arias and Roberto Ruiz, and UMH Associate Professor of Toxicology, Miguel Ángel Sogorb, met with the Vice Rector for International Relations, Vicente Micol, and Development Cooperation and Volunteerism Area Director, Juan José Ballesta. In this meeting, they discussed work that has been completed as well as future actions to carry out. Micol and Ballesta also highlighted UMH interest in cooperating with Central America in training projects and capacity building on issues concerning environmental health.

This project is funded by the Generalitat Valenciana through the 2017 University Development Cooperation Agreement signed by the UMH and the Consellería of Transparency, Social Responsibility, Participation and Cooperation. It is part of the Right to Universal Public Resources (Health, Education, Water, and Sanitation) strategy established in the 2017-2020 Master Plan IV of Valencian Cooperation. Moreover, the project is aligned with Goal 3 (Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted by the United Nations.
