That’s Spanish for where does it hurt? It’s one of many phrases you will learn in Macomb’s new foreign language course, developed specifically for students enrolled in a health and human services program.
SPAN-1265, Spanish for Health Care I, addresses the growing population of Spanish-speaking individuals in the U.S., estimated to reach 40 million by 2020. If you plan to work in health care or a related field, a knowledge of the language, culture and customs shared by these patients will aid in the vital communication necessary for diagnosis and treatment.
Through reading and writing exercises and interactive activities, students will learn basic Spanish phrases, as well as the medical vocabulary and terms related to symptoms, illnesses, body parts, food and diet. Students will also be introduced to customs and communication styles among Hispanic/Latino populations.
The three-credit class, offered for the first time this fall, qualifies as a prerequisite to SPAN-1270 (Elementary Spanish 2) so that you may continue your study of the Spanish language if you so choose.

It’s one thing to tell students that the ancient Hittites were among the first to make weapons out of iron. But Michael Broyles, Macomb history professor, will now be able to describe to them how the flames lick at your hands as you hammer away at a piece of white hot iron before it erupts into a multi-colored sparkler.
Funded by a Macomb Faculty Enhancement Grant, Broyles spent his summer working at the Chesterfield Historical Society’s historic village on Sugarbush Road in Chesterfield Township.
His time was divided between archiving artifacts that have been donated to the society and working in the village’s blacksmith shop, where he forged iron into spears as the Hittites once did.
“I’m having a great time,” says Broyles this summer. “I’ll be hammering at a piece of iron and all of a sudden, it’s like, ‘What do you mean it’s time to go home?’”
