Explorers in Guatemala

Guatemala is a country with a nutritional crisis among infants, who are not getting enough critical nutrients during their first 1,000 days of life. Planet Forward sent a group of student explorers from George Washington University to see how communication technology and community partnerships are being used to get critical nutrition info out to a multi-ethnic, multi-language society.
