Women's Health: A Global Perspective

This elective will be a 12 week elective beginning Wednesday, October 17th and meeting every other week. The goals of this elective are to educate students on global health issues and to provide clinical experience in women's health all while volunteering by teaching underserved and ethnically diverse populations on relevant health topics.

The structure of the elective is as follows:

Weeks 1 - 4 | Introduction, Global Health Issues Faced by Women, and Doctors as Patient Advocates
Students will be assigned readings and videos and will need to actively participate in any lectures, symposia, and discussions.

Weeks 5 - 8 | Clinical shadowing in obstetrics and gynecology
Students will shadow an OB/GYN

Weeks 9 - 12 | Service work in the community relevant to the course
Students will use this time to actively volunteer at organizations or on projects who's focus is related to women's health.

Success in this elective will be measured by both faculty and peer evaluation and may potentially be added to the student's Dean's Letter.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and
was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
