Dominican Republic
You're only limited by your imagination, and AFS opens up a world of adventure by offering exchange programs in over 50 countries. AFS programs present a variety of choices, allowing nearly 10,000 participants annually to adjust program focus according to their individual needs.
The Year Program , far and away AFS's most popular option, is a year-long educational exploration of another country's culture. The AFS Year Program student lives with a host family, attends a local school and becomes involved in community activities. Students completely immerse themselves in another culture by nurturing relationships with the local community, speaking the local language and taking part in their daily routines. Host school attendance is required, not optional, for Year Program participants.
The Semester Program lasts about six months over the course of an academic school semester. Like the Year Program, students stay with host families, attend local schools and take part in community activities. Host school attendance is required, not optional, for Semester Program participants.
The Intensive Program is a shorter-length option involving exchanges lasting from one to three months, usually during a break in the student's academic year. The Intensive Program student may select from a number of options, including a traditional homestay, a concentrated language program, an outdoor education program or a cultural studies program.

Mitochondrial DNA in the Dominican Republic
PDF Version for printing 461 KB

A brief introduction by the editor:
The physical-chemical bases of inheritance The method of selection of animal and vegetable lineages began back in the Neolithic with the aim of attaining more productive individuals. In a simple form, those agriculturalists and shepherds understood that characteristics were transmitted from generation to generation. This fact was affirmed by the monk Gregory Mendel, who, using worms, demonstrated that factors remained as mysterious entities, although he did not know their exact nature; thus they were transmitted from generation to generation. One hundred years later, those mysterious entities have been almost completely clarified and the theme of inheritance is perhaps one of the best known in biology. Since 1910 those “factors” have received the name of genes. [1]
Chromosomes and genes Living beings are the product of repeated divisions of an egg and zygote, which differentiate themselves from the sister cells in order to realize multiple functions. The zygote is nothing more than an initial male and female cell. These cells are known in scientific jargon by the names ovum and spermatozoid. These gametes carry a gene for each given character; that is, each zygote possesses two genes. [2]

Hispanidad and Catholicism. In such a way, Dominicans have been disconnected from their African, their indigenous, and their mixed Afro-Mestizo Criollo (Creole) ancestry and cultural heritage, even though it is these ancestries and heritages which mark Dominicans with the significant emblems of their contemporary identity.

Dominican Republic Report Cultivating the Seeds of Hope:
SGI-Dominican Republic
By Daniel Beriguete Gomez, SGI-Dominican Republic young men's leader
Daniel Gomez
The SGI movement in the Dominican Republic was launched by Japanese immigrants back in the 1960s. Between 1956 and 1959, 1,319 Japanese citizens, a total of 249 families, moved to the Dominican Republic in response to the government's appeals for immigrants. However, many of the locations where the immigrants settled proved infertile and incapable of supporting life. As a result, the government decided to send the immigrants back home, and during 1961 and 1962, 133 of the original 249 families returned to Japan. Another 70 families moved on to countries in South America.
Early Years
One of the immigrants who stayed behind, farmers of the "barren" land, was Kurato Kimura. In 1962, the fifth year after he immigrated, as he struggled to find a way to survive against the odds, he received a letter from his mother in Japan, encouraging him to test the effectiveness of chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo. Inspired by this, he decided to start practicing Buddhism. Around that time he met a man called Jun'ichi Nishio, who had started to practice Nichiren Buddhism in Japan before emigrating, and together they launched activities in the Dominican Republic. Mr. Nishio had come to the Dominican Republic with his family of seven in 1956. His son, Takashi, is currently general director of SGI-Dominican Republic.

HOME The Country As the site of the first European settlement in the New World, the Dominican Republic occupies a fascinating place in world history. Geographically it does not disappoint either. Located within the Greater Antilles, the Dominican Republic shares the island of Hispaniola with Haiti. Consisting of valleys, plains, beaches, and mountains, the island presents a variety of topographies and a coastal zone that is blessed with a warm tropical climate, averaging about 80 degrees year-round. The Dominican Republic also has a rich political and cultural history, blending African, European, and American Indian influences, as seen in its food and people. Through its land, culture, and people, the Dominican Republic offers you a wonderful blend of Latin American cultures, past and present. Santo Domingo The Programs

Language and Culture in the Dominican Republic This course is designed to develop introductory and intermediate level students' verbal and written Spanish skills through the study of Dominican culture. Students gain an appreciation of the country's diverse cultural blend and various linguistic dialects, interact with Dominican peers, and acquire greater ability and confidence in their ability to communicate in oral and written Spanish. The course will consist of a combination of lectures and group activities addressing various aspects of Dominican culture and Spanish grammar. Topics examined include the country's Taino, Hispanic and African Heritage, syncretic and popular religions, local cuisine and dietary habits, and Dominican music, festivals and art. Students also visit and observe several sites in urban Santo Domingo; neighbourhoods, markets, parks, bookstores, artists' workshops, etc., and describe and compare these spaces in written and oral projects.

This site provides general information about the Dominican Republic and it's culture. It is not politically oriented. The intentions here are to create a site that is entertaining and informative for everyone, from the first time tourist to other fellow dominicans. As you might have figured by now, I am Dominican myself. Although I live in the United States, I believe the DR is a beautiful and entertaining place for anyone to visit. So, I hope you enjoy this site. (Note: DR stands for Dominican Republic, not Doctor). Now, let's get to business... The Dominican Republic Located in the Caribbean Sea, the Dominican Republic covers an area of 18,703 square miles (48,440 square kilometers), occupying the eastern portion of Hispaniola (about 2/3 of the Island), the second largest island of the Antilles. It shares the island with Haiti but the two neighbors have little in common. The inhabitants of Haiti have French and African cultural roots. On the other hand, the population of the Dominican Republic is Hispanic in culture. Since the Dominican Republic is located just south of the Tropic of Cancer, the temperature varies little from season to season. Average temperatures range from the high 70s during the day and the low 70s at night.

Cage Culture (Dominican Republic) - Phase I Project 62 of 164 Ramon B. Buzeta
Post Project Abstract
Edited Abstract
Inland fish is the cheapest source of animal protein to be found on the market in Dominican Republic (even cheaper than sea fish or chicken) and is perhaps the most direct way to satisfy this nutritional need in rural communities. Simple cage-culture systems to crop fish resources in the lakes, dams, canals, and ponds available in the country will help improve the nutritional levels and incomes of fishermen and small producers in rural areas and contribute toward an improved attitude regarding water use in their environment. The project will test cages and enclosures of various designs under different local conditions with native and introduced species that can be farmed singly and in combination.

The highly intensive summer program, established in 1997, is ideal for students with an interest in medicine and the allied health professions. The program at PUCMM is designed to enable students to achieve advanced language skills in Spanish and also to provide an introduction to basic health care issues in a Spanish Caribbean context, both rural and urban. Students are exposed to both theoretical public health issues as well as elementary practical medical skills. highlights:
- Dominican homestays - Field research in semi-rural health clinics and urban community service project - Cultural activities and excursions - Work with local public health experts - All courses taught in Spanish The goals of the program are to provide students with an introduction to basic health care issues in a Hispanic Caribbean context and to increase their Spanish language ability to an advanced level.

Designing tobacco control in the Dominican Republic: Understand the culture first Ann M Dozier, RN, PhD , Deborah Ossip-Klein, PhD , Nancy Chin, PhD , Scott McIntosh, PhD , Sergio Diaz, MD , Timothy D. Dye, PhD , Susan Fisher, PhD , Essie Sierra, MPH , Zahira Quiqones, MD , and Latoya Armstrong . (1) Department of Community and Preventive Medicine, University of Rochester, 601 Elmwood Avenue Box 644, Rochester, NY 14642, 585-273-2592,, (2) Pontificia Universidad Católica Madre y Maestra, Autopista Duarte Apartado Postal 822, Santiago, Dominican Republic Background: Among Latin American Countries, the Dominican Republic (DR) ranked 1st or 12th in smoking rates. Tobacco use increased nearly 4-fold in 30 years, with tobacco-related morbidity and mortality concomitantly rising. Published research on DR tobacco use, attitudes/beliefs is limited as are their tobacco control and intervention programs. Methods: To guide such program development a Rapid Assessment Procedure provided a current snapshot of the DR smoking culture. During a 2-week period (2003) six communities were targeted (2 urban, 2 peri-urban, 2 rural) for 2-3 days each. Two interdisciplinary teams (mixed gender and nationalities) conducted participant observations and interviews. Results: Over 150 individuals across the communities representing key leaders and the general community participated. Smokers, quitters and never-smokers were included. Intercommunity differences were identified. Communities’ perceive that “everyone smokes”. This was not substantiated. Never smokers ‘thank god’ that they did not have this habit/custom or vice/addiction. The former is a lifestyle while the latter is a problem. Smoking and coffee drinking are inextricably linked. Older individuals and rural residents are perceived to smoke more. Community knowledge about the affects of smoking is limited to the package warning (it hurts one’s health). Tobacco advertising is ubiquitous. Cigarettes are universally available (singles or packs (10/20)). Smokers are price sensitive. While passive smoking effects are not well known, smokers are respectful of non-smokers and children.
