Augustana College (Rock Island, IL 61201-2210)
Heidi Storl (Project Director: September 2020 to present)
Brian Leech (Co Project Director: April 2021 to present)
Minor in Integrative Medicine and the Humanities

A one-year planning grant to create a minor in integrative medicine and the humanities.

Augustana College proposes a new minor in integrative medicine and the humanities, which will primarily serve the large number of Augustana undergraduates who pursue pre-professional degrees in health care fields. The new minor will (1) deeply integrate humanities content to nurture the ethical, emotional, spiritual, and social skills necessary to prepare individuals to serve as effective, caring health practitioners after graduation, and (2) establish and formalize a new internship program focused on ethics and community outreach with UnityPoint Health, a large regional health care provider. The project’s interdisciplinary planning team will engage in discussions and participate in professional development about integrative medicine and medical/health humanities; identify the courses that need to be revised or created for the minor; obtain approval for the new minor; and strengthen the relationship with UnityPoint Health.
