Bio

Arnedo studied pharmacy at the Universidad de Santiago de Compostela, where she earned her licenciatura in pharmacology with a minor in Ecology. She earned her Master's degree at the School of Public Health of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. At Dickinson she combines Spanish language teaching with her background in public health. She has embraced teaching Spanish for Specific Purposes. In addition to Spanish for the Health Professions and Spanish for Business, she has also taught a globally integrated course on Sustainability in Hispanic Cultures, which included a trip to Cuba to study urban agriculture. She is currently researching the representation of health among migrant workers in contemporary literature and is also working on creating a sustainability dimension for the Dickinson in Spain Program (Málaga).
