Our global programs offer experiential education through US and international humanitarian service organizations placement of as a way to gain unique, hands-on work experience while serving the most underserved populations in challenging global settings.  Our primary aims are to resource our partners and their communities through educational outreach and support programs to increase the quality, availability, and effectiveness of educational and community-based programs designed to prevent disease and injury, improve health, and enhance quality of life.
