Student Engagement for the 2016-2017 Academic Year
The Institute for Rural Health (IRH) believes that students learn from every patient. The more patients that the IRH is able to see and treat, the more knowledge and real-world experiences the students of the College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) receive as part of their education. The IRH staff and CHHS students have traveled numerous miles to offer rural communities health care and health education, which is an essential component and cornerstone of the IRH mission.
