“I think that the greatest strengths of the course are the honesty, thoughtfulness, and dedication that each of our presenters brought to their presentations. It was tremendous to have the opportunity to grow personal knowledge of rural and underserved health from so many perspectives. Another enormous strength is the class itself, I have learned so much from talking with my classmates in the group and small discussions and they are passionate, smart, and insightful and it is so wonderful to learn from and with them about this topic.”

“I think the greatest strength is the discussion with my classmates who are from rural/underserved areas and getting energy and excitement from those who want to serve those places.”

“I really appreciated the diversity and specificity of this course. There were a wide range of speakers but each guest speaker and reading provoked really meaningful discussion and depth that made this course incredibly engaging.”
