“It was a leadership opportunity, as well as educating the health care community and bringing about the UST values that we have here to the rest of the community. ” — Basant Sallam
The future physicians, dentists, nurses, social workers, pharmacists, and physician assistants who take part in the Connecticut Area Health Education Center‘s (CT AHEC) Urban Service Track/AHEC Scholars Program are walking the walk, and now, talking the talk. In addition to learning about interprofessional patient care, they’re promoting it among their peers nationally through their new podcast series, “Urban Service Talks.”
In the latest “UConn Health Pulse” podcast, UConn dental student Basant Sallam, UConn nursing student Donice “Nicey” Brooks, and UConn graduate public health and social work program alum Michal Klau-Stevens discuss the Urban Service Track/AHEC Scholars Program’s objectives and their outreach efforts.
