Health in the Global Community

This short-term experiential learning program provides undergraduate and graduate students of all majors with the opportunity to engage in an exploration of critical global health concepts in Kerala, India. This program is made possible through Nazareth's partnership with Rajagiri College. 

This is an exploratory trip to develop future relationships and projects, including internships and service-learning. Participants will become more engaged global citizens, develop intercultural competencies, and gain experience in ethical reasoning and action.

We invite you to be a part of this exciting opportunity to examine health issues that challenge the Kerala community and how they're addressed, and reflect upon methods of overcoming the challenges of achieving good health around the world.
