This is a newly revamped program that was previously named Using Media to Explore Health and Wellness With the Bad RIver Ojibwe and has been extended from a week to two weeks during May. Students can earn 2 credits of Nutritional Sciences 421 and is approved as a field requirement for the Undergraduate Certificate in Global Health.
This program allows UW-Madison undergraduate students to connect with Bad River Ojibwe community members and to learn about indigenous physical, mental, spiritual, and environmental health from Bad River culture keepers. You will learn from Ojibwe elders about traditional food systems of the Anishinaabe people and about health disparities that exist between indigenous and non-indigenous populations.
The eligibility for this program includes at least a freshman standing and 2.0 GPA. There is no language requirement. The application is open now through January 2nd!
