Abstract Title

Service Learning at Women's Center

Abstract

Being culturally competent is a beneficial skill as a public health professional. As a Community Based Public Health major I will be spending a majority of my time working with the community. The Women’s Center at Kent State University strives to help women live healthy lives by providing a variety of services. The focus of my service was to work with the Pantry and Career Closet. These areas helped individuals, both men and women at Kent State to have access to items such as food and career clothes. My service allowed me to work with people of different cultures and allowed me to get to know them on a personal level. This enabled me to develop my skills and knowledge in cultural competency and sensitivity. My time at the Women’s Center prepared me to be more comfortable and understanding of many cultures.
