|Healthcare and Culture: An International Field Experience
June 3-16, 2013; 2 credits
Through firsthand experience in Malawi, Africa, students will examine the effects of poverty, beliefs, behaviors, services and delivery systems on healthcare in an international context. This international field experience will encourage cultural awareness as students interact with the indigenous people through their culture, language and worldviews. Course will include an examination of the role of poverty, ethnicity, race, gender, religion, and socio-economic status in shaping the health-related beliefs and behaviors of individuals through experiential learning, discussion and lectures.
