URI students' trip does double duty: learning and helping

(PROVIDENCE, RI) A group of URI students is spending their winter vacation in the Dominican Republic studying politics and health care.  The trip is part of a semester long class on political and social change in the Caribbean.  URI Political Science Professor Maureen Moakley and nursing student Alexa Wilson talk about the trip and what it means to both students and the people they visit.
