UNE students in several health professions visit Ghana for a life-changing interprofessional service learning experience, where they engage in direct health services, collaboration, community education, and academic and cross-cultural exchange. Through this program, students broaden their world view and begin the process of becoming culturally sensitive health professionals.

Portland Campus: Light lunch will be served
Biddeford Campus: Light snacks will be available; all welcome to bring your lunch from the nearby Commons Caf.
