The Department of Public Health is raising funds for a June trip by students and faculty to the Dominican Republic for a service-learning project focusing on health promotion and disease prevention. The first fundraiser is 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.  Tuesday, April 4, at Panda Express on campus, where 20 percent of sales will be donated to the Fresno State Foundation in Public Health, specifically for the Dominican Republic Clean Water Initiative. Patrons must present the fundraiser flyer during checkout. The project will work to bring clean water to encampments in the Dominican Republic, where polluted water often leads to health epidemics like diarrhea, cholera and typhoid. Donations will be used to purchase Lifestraw Community high volume purifiers, chlorine tablets, sanitation items and food for residents living in the most impoverished areas of the country. Tax deductible donations can be made to: Fresno State Foundation (ATTN: Dominican Republic Summer Program), 2345 E. San Ramon M/S MH 30, Fresno, CA 93740.
