NURS 448 - Global Issues and Community Health (Guatemala Theory) (2)

This elective course provides the opportunity to explore the impact of national and international policy decisions on the health and well-being of individuals and communities. Additionally, the course provides the opportunity to explore the role of cultural beliefs and values in health-seeking behaviors. Students will participate in an immersion learning program in which they will live and work in a culture different from their own. The associations among international conflict and corporate activities, poverty and lack of resources in communities, and health status of community members will be central to the learning experience.
