This course’s mission is to inform students about homelessness and
barriers to healthcare, and provide them with opportunities to create tangible change within these
communities. In particular, we will be focusing on the barriers to accessing and navigating health
insurance. We will be learning about health insurance policies through Covered California and
teaching students how they can become health insurance enrollment counselors. We will discuss
how we can do our part in working towards a world in which no individual is discouraged from
receiving medical aid due to unaffordable services.
