Modern health care extends beyond the hospital and into our very neighborhoods. Whether it means ensuring everyone has access to nutritious and fresh foods, or providing vulnerable populations with preventative checkups, health care is now a community matter. The Community Health BS develops leaders who are dedicated to addressing health challenges at their source while also creating partnerships with both public and private organizations to leverage resources. By creating a community-wide response to these challenges, we can better advocate for patients and provide education opportunities for people of all backgrounds.
