    What People Are Saying

    Crucial information for us as healthcare practitioners. Knowing the context and history under which we function makes it possible to truly work on healing whole human beings. Without this social/cultural context, we are not fully able to respond to and serve the communities under our care. We don't live in a vacuum, and this course helps fill in the gaps of what has been long hidden from our view and education. Should be required learning in our schooling.
