Community Service Learning

Sandra Riegle, PhD
Alexandra Nolen, PhD, MPH 
Institute for Medical Humanities

It has been recognized that barriers imposed by cultural, language and income are not taught in the classroom but are essential components needed to treat diverse populations in order to provide real and effective health care and treatment. Through this service learning project, classroom modules were developed and implemented by faculty who then mentored students on-site during service missions. Students learned how society shapes healthcare and became more aware of the barriers patients face in improving their health and what can be done to break down those barriers.
