Why will I LOVE this Program?
Imagine you’re a physician and you see the same symptoms and/or disease in your patients. Coincidence? The Public Health Scholars Program reminds us that geopolitical and socio-economical factors can impact patient health as well. We will learn about another side of health that is often hidden and broaden our minds to the forces affecting our future patients’ health.
