The students of UC San Diego will return for a Health, Healing, and Sustainable Community Development program both in June & July, 2024.
They will learn the multifaceted perspectives of medicine through visits to non-governmental organizations that promote alternative methods to Western medicine.
Throughout the trip, students will look at the social issues of access to care and the importance of religion and tourism in the Balinese culture. For the first week of the trip, students will assist with administering preventative health check-ups to the local community with medical students from Bali. The students will also have an opportunity to deliver health education workshops about exercise, nutrition, and hygiene to local youth in the second week of service.
