As part of a U.S. experiential learning tour to witness various health challenges, a group of students from Alma College visited Stockton University on May 2. The main focus of the day centered on disparities, equity and child health, followed by a campus tour.
The group was hosted by Dr. Laurie Shanderson, associate dean in the School of Health Sciences at Stockton University. Among the presenters were: NJPHK’s Deputy Director Dr. Darrin Anderson, PhD, who discussed the different challenges seen in rural community health in comparison to those seen in urban and suburban communities.
Dr. M. Alysia Mastrangelo, professor of physical therapy at Stockton University, also participated in the session. She shared information about Get FIT@Stockton, a program dedicated to promoting an inclusive culture of health and wellness for people with disabilities, health conditions and their caregivers. Dr. Mastrangelo is also a NJPHK-Vineland partner who leads the collective impact for Health Equity.SHARE:
