About the Course:

Welcome to the Health Advocacy DeCal! This weekly DeCal is 1.5 hours long and counts for 1 units P/NP. The goal of this section is for students to critically think and engage in thoughtful discussions on a range of public health topics in the Bay Area, while gaining strong communication skills and learning to work with patients from all different backgrounds. The DeCal aims to train students to become potential volunteers for the Bay Area Regional Help Desk Consortium (BARHC), a partnership between Highland Hospital, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland and San Francisco General Hospital. The Consortium is dedicated to assisting low-income populations in the Bay Area navigate through various social services including public benefits, employment, housing and food access. After completing the DeCal, students will have the option to apply to be a BARHC volunteer. Students who choose not to continue volunteering will still benefit from learning an overview of many public health issues the low-income community faces today.
