Community Health

Community health and healing program was started in partnership with Harrisburg Area Community College – Department of Nursing and Global Education. Nursing students complete a 3-credit service learning course in the village of Alendu while providing quality care to the local community. Out of this initiative a continuous school clinic has been started. The clinic serves students at LHA. Our goal is to provide health care services that will meet the needs of the local people in Alendu village and Rachuonyo District.

Health care providers, health care students and other volunteers are invited to participate in the annual medical teams that travel to Rachuonyo to provide medical care.
