Serving the Community
After taking the course Community Outreach to Underserved Communities in Baltimore, all Peace Corps Coverdell Fellows work or volunteer in the school’s Community Outreach Program. They work in community agencies with health and wellness programs such as:
Improving access to care
Senior health and wellness
Children’s health and youth development
Some students travel abroad to learn and work in international locations for short-term opportunities during their educational tenure. These opportunities are highly selective and may include clinical experience, community assessment, research training, or student-led initiatives. Others work with or learn from faculty involved with global health initiatives, and the school’s Center for Global Nursing helps students on a career path in global health.
