Community Health in Oaxaca, Mexico

 The Community Health in Oaxaca program is a collaboration between the Stanford Office of Community Health and Child Family Health International (CFHI), aimed at developing future leaders in immigrant and community health.
The Community Health in Oaxaca program is designed as an immersive training experience for students who are committed to working with the immigrant Latino population in the United States and who wish to increase their cultural and linguistic competency as well as their understanding of the health factors affecting Latinos. The main objectives are to prepare students for better service to immigrant populations in the US by broadening public health knowledge; increasing linguistic competency in Spanish; providing exposure to health care systems and clinical interactions in another culture; and fostering an understanding of the social and economic factors that impact the health of Mexicans and Mexican-American immigrants to the United States.Founded in 1992, CFHI is a global family of committed professionals and students who work at the grassroots level to promote the health of the world community. CFHI is committed to providing students a unique opportunity to experience another culture and healthcare system in a responsible way. Though we work closely with our global partners to provide you the best possible trip, the nature of international travel means that we cannot anticipate all challenges that may occur. It is important that participants realize they must remain flexible in the face of situations that may be difficult to understand. Participating in a CFHI program means that you are an informal ambassador to the community you visit and your professional behavior is of the utmost importance.
