Wisconsin AHEC (Area Health Education Center) is delighted to announce our annual “Wisconsin Express” (one-week cultural immersion program) will be offered again in Spring and Summer 2018.
This field experience offers unique insider access to a local region of Wisconsin, including tours of facilities and conversations with people who live and work in that part of the state. The 2018 program offers 14 sites, each with a different cultural focus (such as Native American, Amish, Somali, Hmong, African American, Latinx), and other special focus areas (such as aging, women’s health, addiction, or incarceration). Teams of 6-12 student stay overnight and travel together throughout the week to tour local resources and meet health care providers and many additional professionals in the region, to gain an understanding of the community. Past participants have appreciated this opportunity to explore interesting areas and programs in the state, which they otherwise would not have discovered.
Summer (10 sites) – May 20-25, 2018
Spring Break (4 sites) – 3 different weeks in March 2018; see application for timing and site locations
Participant fee is $210 for the week; partial scholarship assistance is available for students unable to pay the entire fee.
Applications received by Friday December 22 will receive priority consideration. Please encourage students from any major who are interested in culture, teamwork, and community health to apply!
