To that end, we invite juniors and seniors particularly in the majors of Social Work, Nursing, Healthcare Administration and Policy, Sociology, Medical Anthropology, and Education or pre-health majors. The importance of this topic is directly applicable to students in professional and graduate training in health and law.
