TCNJ will be partnering with Explorers Sans Frontieres (ESF) on this program. ESF’s mission in Haiti will afford the opportunity for students to provide direct public health services to an underserved community. Students will learn to diagnose extreme health disparities in all populations across the lifespan, develop a treatment plan in a resource-limited environment, and educate the Haitian community regarding chronic and acute health issues. They will be immersed within a very unique culture and live within the community they serve. Participants will complete this program having gained practical experience and a new perspective on the role of a health care provider globally.
