|CHIUS: Community Health Initiative by UBC Students
The Community Health Care Initiative by UBC Students (CHIUS) aims to provide interdisciplinary primary health care, community services referral and provision of information to DTES/inner city residents. The program objectives include:
To provide UBC health care students with exposure to the complex social issues of an underserviced, inner-city environment including alternative lifestyle choices, poverty, addiction, HIV/AIDS and so forth. In doing so, CHIUS aims to instil better understanding of such issues in future health care providers and improve long term service to members of such communities.
CHIUS is based upon Service Learning whereby a balance is created between the provision of needed services and learning experiences for students.
