This immersive, interactive experience explores the evolution, celebration, and future of human rights. In this program you will engage in discussion about human rights, indigenous populations, and health care as a basic human right and hopefully be inspired to make a difference in the lives of others and work toward erasing barriers and promoting meaningful, lasting change.
Your instructors and guides for this experience will be Professor Jamie Turgeon-Drake and Dr. Amy Nelson. The class will take a coach bus trip to Winnipeg, Canada with stops at Flandreau to the tribal office and health service, and to Sisseton Wahpeton, South Dakota, to tour the college and Indian Health Services facilities. In Winnipeg, we will explore the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, which is the first museum in the world dedicated to the evolution, celebration, and future of human rights. We will also visit the University of Winnipeg, and hospitals and outpatient care facilities in Winnipeg.
This is a Spring 2019 online course with travel to Canada in May.
