Aging Globally: Building Global Skills by Studying Health and Aging in Scandinavia

The overarching objective of this project is to increase the number and diversity of Health Studies and cross-disciplinary students studying and working internationally. International collaborators include higher education institutions and community partners in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Iceland, all non-traditional destinations with arguably the best healthcare systems in the world. Four activities for building global skills include a faculty-led and COIL blended international course Aging Globally: Lessons from Scandinavia (Aging Globally), internships, academic exchanges and summer programs. Western University expects to strengthen and diversify School of Health Studies international curriculum, reduce barriers, improve equity and increase international educational opportunities.
