This course includes an assessment of needs, goal setting, and outcomes, as well as implementing health promotion activities. Additional study will focus on the community as a whole and identify needs endemic to the people within it. Health promotion activities and treatment of health problems will be provided within a community with needs. Experiences that provide learning about cultural differences related to health care, family, economics, technology, religion, and other aspects will be identified.

The trip is part of a Christian mission, but all faith traditions are welcome in addition to no faith background. The trip is focused on healthcare, and the experience has roles for majors that are not enrolled in healthcare programs. Service opportunities include service to children, hair washing for children, assistance with medical/dental procedures, distribution of supplies, construction, and spiritual care.

This course fulfills the CL, OC, and ITL requirements.
