Community Health Immersion
(formerly WI Express)

Join us in Milwaukee for this exciting new program:

Roe v. Wade Reversal | Milwaukee
January 5, 13, 14, & 19, 2023

 

Learn how Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin is working to serve patients and communities in the wake of abortion becoming illegal in Wisconsin following the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

 

Topics include Planned Parenthood structure & key focus areas, reproductive health & marginalized populations, a tour of a clinic, Roe v. Wade historical view, strategies to continue providing access to care, and what actions you can take.

 

This hybrid Immersion will meet virtually on January 5, 2023 from 5:30-7:30pm, in-person in Milwaukee from January 13-14, 2023, and virtually on January 19, 2023 from 5:30-7:30pm. Dorm rooms are available at no cost to students who do not have lodging in Milwaukee during the in-person portion.

Since the mid-1990s, AHEC Community Health Immersion (formerly WI Express) has given undergraduate and graduate health profession students the unique opportunity to connect with the diverse communities and cultures of Wisconsin, exploring health care delivery and public health in medically underserved areas. This well-known experience is now integrated into our AHEC Scholars program, and we invite students outside of the program to join our sessions as room allows.

 

Multidisciplinary groups explore different regions' cultural diversity and healthcare, developing strategies for intercultural and inter-professional effectiveness in healthcare practice. Throughout the program, participants have opportunities to reflect on and evaluate their experiences.

Activities vary by site and may include:

  • Experiential and interactive learning in groups

  • Participation in community activities

  • Access to healthcare organizations behind the scenes

  • Conversations about life in the community and region

  • Interactions with practitioners in primary and public healthcare

Winter Break 2022 and Spring Semester 2023 In-Person and Virtual Sessions are planned throughout WI.
