One thought on “대한민국 KIS with GPSA

    In March nine KIS sophomores and juniors traveled to Williamson, West Virginia with Global Public Service Academies ( GPSA ) to learn about the region and rural healthcare. Students prepared for the trip beginning in October, meeting weekly for medical lectures and discussion and practicing basic health screenings such as taking blood pressure. Because Williamson’s health profile includes high rates of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and COPD, the group concentrated on understanding the causes or risk factors for those health issues, and learned what treatment or prevention measures are available. This was our first partnership with GPSA so as knowledgeable as our group was about medical concerns, and as excited as we were to shadow healthcare workers and learn about the town’s culture, we were a little nervous too.
