Studying Abroad in Austria and Hungary

Becky Davis, Margo Minnich, Jennifer Peter, and I have started to prepare our summer program in Austria and Hungary to be held from May 17 to May 29, 2021. The topic of the program is "Exploring Holistic Health - Implications for Care and Policy". Undergraduate, graduate and professional students will visit with us, among other sites, an eldercare facility and hospital, an emergency medical services center, the Psychology Department at Karoli Gaspar University, a refugee organization, an alternative healer in the shamanic tradition, the Hungarian Chamber of Health Professionals, an organ transplant ward, and a pilgrimage shrine. Also, we will spend a whole day in Bad Kreuzen at the First Center for Traditional European Medicine to learn about and experience complementary treatments, such as hydrology, wraps, and Celtic meditation.
