    Para este estudio, yo pasé tres semanas en el laboratorio clínico del hospital "Patronato Municipal San José," o el "Hospital del Sur." Observé el trabajo del laboratorio y la manera en que el laboratorio funciona. También hablé con los tecnólogos sobre su trabajo, el hospital, y su cultura en general. Aprendí mucho sobre el estado de la ciencia clínica en el Ecuador y sobre la cultura ecuatoriana.

    Crossing Borders and Bridging Gaps
    (2007) Udow, Rachel; Solberg, Janet L.
    Interacting with the abuelitos taught me that we could find common ground and communicate despite vast differences in age, ethnicity, language, social class, education, and religion. I also learned how to lead the abuelitos in focused group discussions and activities in a manner that was both effective and respectful.

    Education and the Urban Youth in Quito
    (2007) Brainerd, Rachel H.; Solberg, Janet L.
    This school, like many others in Ecuador, is severely under-funded, meaning that daily we erased old workbooks so that others could use the same book. The children were usually behind in both math and language, and struggled with various behavioral (ADD), and emotional problems. We worked daily on personal hygiene (brushing teeth before class), proper behavior, and education fundamentals. My role extended beyond being an instructor. I was a friend giving hugs, providing emotional support, and acting as a stable resource.
