Advancing Health Care Equity in Sacramento - Quarter at Aggie Square
"For more than a year, staff at the Feminist Research Institute have collaborated with feminist faculty from around the campus to develop a health care learning experience for students as part of Quarter at Aggie Square, the immersive new educational hub for UC Davis students in Sacramento. Students who enroll in "Advancing Health Care Equity in Sacramento" (AHCE) in Winter 2021 will not just receive credit for classes taken in Science & Technology Studies and Religious Studies. They’ll also benefit from an integrated curriculum aimed at rooting out the systemic causes of health disparities, as well as access to a quarter-long health care-focused internship with a local program or organization.
Below is an interview with three of the AHCE's founders, FRI Associate Director Sarah McCullough, Program Manager Anna Ward and Emily Merchant, assistant professor in Science & Technology Studies. "
