The students join the Duke Community for a two week course - NURS555 Exploring Global Patterns of Health and Illness.

International participants met with Dean Broome upon their arrival. Other activites include a tour of Duke University Health System, culture night, a community tour to see the social determinats of health in Durham, and other oppoturnities to learn about evidence-based interventions to address common health/illness problems.
