Real-Life Learning About Health Policy

Race, gender, geography, income, and other factors influence health care in so many ways. These are matters that don’t just influence how we live, but also how well we live. From government-subsidized health care to addiction counseling, there are so many issues that shape health policy.

GCU health sciences and health profession studies students explored the intersection of these issues during Wellness Week. The event included public presentations, held outdoors so that anyone could take time to learn more. Their presentations covered a range of topics including smoking, PPE, mental health, heart health, and healthcare access. Faculty members Sachiko Komagata, Ph.D., and Donna Cetroni, RN, ’05 sponsored the event as part of their HRP351 Health Policy course.
