Introducing our brand new lessons for the summer program!

Mental Health in the Digital Age

With technology increasingly influencing different aspects of our lives, we must ask the question: “How does it affect our health?” This lesson tackles this question and and provides information about navigating mental health amidst the digital age.

Disabilities in Healthcare

The disabled community is an often unrecognized and particularly vulnerable population within the healthcare system. This lesson introduces physical, mental, and other disabilities from the perspectives of public health, SDOH, biology, and new technologies.

Medical Interpretation and Translation

Cultural and linguistic barriers exist in healthcare, and as society continues to become more multicultural, it is important for healthcare professionals to understand the importance of dealing with these disparities. This lesson introduces the role of medical interpreters and translator, and the importance of understanding different barriers that exist in healthcare.

Decolonizing Bodies in Public Health

This lessons analyzes current health and social inequities by tracing its roots back to colonization. By looking at these roots and examining health from the perspective of the colonized, this lecture attempts to reframe public health narratives about “developing nations” and disadvantaged communities

Getting Involved in Research

As an undergraduate in college, getting involved in research is a great way for students to become engaged with the forefront of medical and scientific discovery. However, the process of starting research is very ambiguous, and this lesson uncovers some of the strategies in which students coming into college can navigate through these difficulties.

The Basics to Interviewing

Interviewing is a basic life skill that we all need to learn in order to get jobs, internships, and different positions moving forward. This lesson introduces the different types of interview questions that may be asked, general tactics to navigate different situation, and tips on creating an overall great first impression. In addition, students will be able to put these strategies to fruition by practicing with real life situations in synchronous lectures.

As past cohort students, you will also have access to these lessons once they are published. If you are interested in any of these lessons, be on the lookout!
