I am a Biological Science major at NCSU and I am in my 5th year. Over the past two years, I have been taking Anthropology classes and it has become very interesting to me. I am one credit away from a minor and I may possibly go to graduate school for Biological Anthropology.

I am working for the university doing research in a plant biology lab.
I am a researcher and co-coordinator of a research group on health of the
black and maroon in Brazil, which belongs to a public university, and I'm
very interested to be visiting your university, and meet other
researchers and teachers who have studies on black people or
I had the opportunity to do internship at Elon University in North
Carolina for a month in 2008, where he had contact with the health
anthropology, and in 2011 we are trying to verify the possibility of
visiting universities and researchers Americans who study the issue of
inequities and inequalities ethnic / racial and the problem of access to
the health of the black population, which is one of the great problems we
have in Brazil too.
The idea is to try to schedule a visit in May or June 2011, and we have
availability we get up to a week, or maybe a little more, and so we could
be exchanging experience and can show what we have studied in Brazil with
communities black in rural areas. We have much interest yet to receive
them or their students themselves through scientific exchange, and we are
still making agreements, joint research projects, articles and everything
that is academically viable, if it is in their interest.
