Wisconsin Express: La Crosse

Along with this year's Wisconsin Express program in Fennimore, another group of five students (four from the University of Wisconsin- Madison, and one from the University of Wisconsin- La Crosse) participated in the the La Crosse program from May 21 - 26, 2017. The students participated in this week long program, designed to expose them to communities and cultures they would otherwise not be familiar with.

The group met with a number of local health professionals throughout the southwestern region of Wisconsin. During these interactions, students learned about different disparate groups (Amish, Hispanic, Native American, low-income, people with disabilities) in the area experienced a number of different healthcare settings, such as rural, non-profit, government, reproductive health clinics. The students discussed a number of different health topics such as reproductive health, HPV/AIDS and drug use harm reduction strategies, midwifery, the importance of cultural competence when working with unique population, and the impact poverty has on health.
