NCU Faculty Profile: Bringing Medical Care to Remote Mayan Communities

Bruce McNellie (Ph.D., Adjunct Faculty, School of Psychology)

Twenty-six years ago, NCU faculty member Dr. Bruce McNellie observed a line of obviously pregnant women stretching around the block, waiting in the cold rain to receive limited, state-offered prenatal care. "I was working in Child Protective Services at the time, but I was motivated to help these women," reveals McNellie.
