This class meets weekly, in addition to placing students in a service-learning position in the local community. During class lecture time, students will participate in related class discussions based on the assigned readings. Some topics include cultural competency of healthcare providers, the social determinants of health, unconscious bias, intersectionality, the ethics and safety of undergraduate volunteers in health care settings, how to determine the needs of diverse communities, and the delivery of appropriate health care. Students will also actively reflect on their own service experiences in a weekly journal.
