Healthcare for Unique Populations 

In a Changing World, unique groups face unique health challenges. Those challenges specific to a diverse set of peoples will be presented by representatives that work at a grassroots level. Learn how to design a program for marginalized populations and take the connections you make to the next level by implementing that program during a 6-month co-op working with our speaker’s organizations.

Goal: Learn about LGBTQ+, indigenous, and informal settlement health and how health programs are built from the group up for those unique populations.

Outcome: Take your idea for a health program to the next level through a co-op at one of our partner organizations.
