Great news! We are thrilled to share some exciting updates on the impact of your support in the Bountiful program. Together, we are making a difference in the lives of children and families around the world.

1. New Health Lesson: Maternal Mental Health

The BYU Public Health team has been hard at work designing a new health lesson focused on maternal mental health. This valuable addition will further empower families in the Bountiful program to lead healthier lives.

3. Intern Contributions

Public health interns have generously volunteered their time, and we are grateful for their efforts. Most recently, Amy Colton helped organize a hunger banquet for Guatemala in Spanish Fork and other activities, fostering awareness about hunger issues. Are you aware of someone interested in an internship opportunity? If so, we’d be thrilled to have them on our team!

Adelyn Serveza is a shining example of the positive influence your contributions have made. Before coming to Utah to pursue a Public Health degree, Adelyn was a coordinator with Bountiful, providing invaluable assistance to families in her community in the Philippines. Now, she is actively sharing her experiences at events held in Utah, inspiring others to join our cause.

7. Humanitarian Trips to Peru and Ghana

The BYU Public Health teams, including professors and students, have embarked on humanitarian trips to countries like Peru and Ghana.

We would love to have you join us on a trip.
