A new Community Medicine program at Earlham
Ryan Williams, Reid Health's trauma program manager and EMS coordinator; Dr. Emily Kraft, Reid's EMS medical director; Mike Deibel, Earlham's Associate Vice President of Academic Affairs; and Peter Blair, Director of Earlham's Center for Global Health.
The Center for Global Health offer students a Community Medicine program that provides clinical training and hands-on experiences treating chronically ill patients in the local community.
Earlham students enrolled in pre-health programs can become certified health coaches, working with patients in their homes on weekly rotations to promote wellness. The program is the result of an expanded partnership between Earlham’s Center for Global Health and Reid Health.
