Lancaster Site – Incarceration Focus

Site coordinator: Laura Pettersen 
6 students

The Lancaster site offers students a first-hand opportunity to explore incarceration healthcare through visits to maximum and minimum state prisons and county jail. Students will gain insights into the challenges and rewards of providing healthcare in this unique setting. The week will also explore rural Grant and Crawford counties focusing on income and geography’s effects on health and access to healthcare. We will hear from community members, healthcare practitioners, and public health professionals.

Students will be offered enrollment after the application deadline.
