Bad River Global Health/Tribal Youth Program
This program is a field course in the Undergraduate Certificate in Global Health (UCGH). It connects UW-Madison with people in programs on the Bad River Reservation in northern Wisconsin. The program is designed to provide UW students in the UCGH program opportunities to learn about Native American health issues and both traditional and current holistic projects aimed at addressing health issues on the reservation. This holistic approach has students engaging with tribal elders and others on the reservation in activities designed to demonstrate the Native American connection to the land and how this connection is a vital point in addressing the health and well-being of native peoples on the reservation and beyond.
