Serving the Underserved

A Course in Poverty Medicine

Church Health is proud to partner with Methodist LeBonheur Healthcare to offer Serving the Underserved, a six-week certificate course that seeks to create a space for productive dialogue among health science students on the components of medicine among underserved populations and the ways in which poverty shapes the health lives of people.

Serving The Underserved is supported by Church Health in collaboration with the Faith Health Collaborative. The Faith Health Collaborative empowers health profession students at UTHSC to unite their science and their faith, their jobs and their passions, their practices and their ideas.

ABOUT

Each of the six classes focus on a topic related to poverty medicine led by a featured speaker who is a leader within the Memphis medical community and elsewhere. Students interact with the reading materials and discuss the relevant topics among themselves and with the presenter. Only by bringing ourselves and our experiences to the patient, and actively listening to them, can we hope to practice better medicine.
