IHS collaborates with CoFA to hold first Healthy Village workshop
Master of Science and Dietetic Internship Students participated in the Healthy Village workshop

On Saturday, March 23, the Department of Interdisciplinary Health Studies and the College of Fine Arts teamed up to provide the first Healthy Village graduate workshop to the Combined Master of Science and Dietetic Internship students from the School of Applied Health Sciences and Wellness. During this workshop called “Consent and Communication,” graduate students explored radical listening, eco-mapping, and other patient advocacy practices through a series of interactive sessions.

The Healthy Village is a multi-media learning initiative based on the belief that effective healthcare requires cross-disciplinary collaboration. Using live theater, film, narrative medicine, visual thinking strategies, and other immersive arts techniques, the Healthy Village simulates the real-time problem solving, communication, and social advocacy skills OHIO graduates will find essential in their future careers.
