In the world, in our community, within blocks from Centenary, people suffer from easily preventable diseases. Why does this happen? What can be done about it? More importantly, what are we going to do about it?
Santé partners with the community to improve the health of some
of the least advantaged people and produce students who are committed to overcoming poverty and prepared for careers of service, both nationally or internationally. See our four-part approach for more about how the program is designed to produce the effective, committed graduates sought after by employers.
We have partnerships with the Martin Luther King Health Center and Zanmi Lasante (Partners in Health in Haiti). We've worked to help the MLKHC establish a brand, understand their patients, compete in Give for Good, establish a community garden, and begin using culinary medicine. You never know what a non-profit will need. Students regularly volunteer on clinic days at the MLKHC. We’re promoting human rights in Haiti through Speak Out for Haiti.
Students can earn Career and Community credit working with Santé in Shreveport. Students who travel to Haiti may earn Culture credit.
If you'd like to be a friend of Santé then like our Facebook page (Santé@Centenary). You can join in the discussion and come to public events.
