Intro to Global Health 4/21/13 Service Reflection Serving the disadvantaged community is one of the tenets of the Jesuit mission. As a Jesuit community, we strive to give our time and talents to those less fortunate than ourselves. For this reason, a service component was added to the Introduction to Global Health class. One of the main reasons I am interested in the field of Public Health is the correlation I see between Public Health and service to the needy. Therefore, I believe the service that I did for this class was a great success. The following reflection will outline the positives and negatives of my service and connect the service I did to the topic of Global Health. For my service hours, I tutored at De La Salle middle school. I took many positives from my experience at De La Salle. These include a new understanding of how education relates to health and new friendships with middle school students. The relation of education to health will be spoken to in a later paragraph. For now, I will speak to the relationships I created with the students of De La Salle. Solidarity is a strong underlying theme in the Jesuit mission of service. Solidarity is the idea that in order to serve a population, one must first know that population. Such solidarity shone through my experience at De La Salle. The one-on-one tutoring program allowed me to get to know the kids I was teaching while simultaneously teaching them. This relationship building allowed me to better tutor the students because I knew them and how they would best understand the material. Something as simple as sharing a joke or a story would allow us to grow in our tutor- tutee relationship.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
