The Global Medical Training Decal is an expansion of our current organization that meets once a week to talk about tropical diseases and their treatments pertaining to the country that our medical trip is headed to. The Decal will not only touch upon diseases prevalent to tropical countries but also analyze their origin—meaning that we will ask critical questions that will allow us to investigate the potency of the disease and the social conditions that exacerbate these rates. We will be looking at the social issues that make certain populations vulnerable to diseases and contribute to an overall lower quality of life. Our Decal will integrate the learning of health conditions abroad and translate that into how it affects populations here in the US as well. We will discuss topics like mental health, gang violence, nutrition, public health, human anatomy and medical conditions. The aforementioned aside, we will have weekly readings that aim to expand on the discussion surrounding the topic. Students will reflect on their thoughts pertaining to the questions provided with the assignment in a one-page response.
