Hunger and Health Care in Sub-Saharan Africa

Zambia

This course explores hunger and health care in SubSaharan Africa. The on-line preparation course will focus on Zambia’s people, faith, sociocultural and economic situation, and achievement toward two of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals related to hunger and health.  During the immersion experience, students will perform nutritional assessments, provide health screenings, healthcare services, and health promotion teaching, interact with Zambia health profession students, perform community needs assessments, and engage in ethnographic study.  At the completion of the service time, students will travel to Livingstone to see Victoria Falls and participate in a photo safari in Botswana.  Students will develop a health or hunger project and disseminate the project on the CU campus.
