More specifically, the integrated seminars, readings, and internship focus on: (1) basic cultural and socioeconomic elements that explains and shapes behaviors, interpersonal relations in general and the provision of health care in particular, (2) the organization and roles of non-governmental community service organizations, and (3) how support for community programs is secured through grants from foundations and other sources.
