Register for Spring 2022 Serving the Underserved!

|

Many of you have heard about “Serving the Underserved” already — maybe from upper-class students or at orientation or from other faculty and staff. Serving The Underserved is a certificate course offered by Methodist Healthcare, Church Health, and UTHSC that creates space for productive dialogue about health care among underserved populations and how poverty affects the health lives of communities.

Serving The Underserved is also a core component of the Co-Curricular Certificate in Social Determinants of Health offered by UTHSC. You do not have to be working toward the SDOH certificate to participate.

The time to apply is now. We will begin on Tuesday, March 22. We will meet from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm on four consecutive Tuesdays, ending April 12. We have a fantastic slate of speakers lined up. Some of the people we will hear this term include Dr. Scott Morris, CEO of Church Health, Dr. Phil Baker of Good Shepherd Pharmacy, and Dr. Cassandra Christiansen, director of School-Based Programs and Community Outreach for the College of Dentistry at UTHSC. We will also be hosting a conversation on the impact of neighborhoods on health outcomes with leaders from the Center for Transforming Communities.

You may apply by emailing Rev. Adam Gordon with your name, UTHSC email address, college, and year of graduation. Please feel free to reach out to Adam if you have any questions or need additional information.
