Day 1 – Global Health at Home


As part of Global Health Week, Global Health at Home kicks off this event with an interactive basketball contest, candy and informational card handouts, patient art displays, an interactive mural painting, and a food drive. We hope to provide insight on the daily difficulties of the elderly and raise awareness of food deserts around Durham, NC and other areas around us. With the art displays and mural, we hope to shed light on the daily lives of people coping with chronic illnesses. The food drive will last throughout the entire Global Health Week, with the focus of helping to overcome food deserts through student donations. In summary, our event focuses on the elderly, chronic illnesses, and food deserts in the Durham community.
