In this unique 3 year course, students will be immersed in communities and linked to families, developing a longitudinal relationship in order to better understand the human dimensions of an individual’s health experience.

We anticipate that throughout this course students will provide benefit(s) to the individuals, families, and the communities with whom they are working.
Pairs of students will follow individuals and families through all aspects of their health including activities such as making home visits, attending medical appointments, and utilizing community resources to help meet the patients’ needs.
