The Intercultural Health Certificate represents a collaboration between the School of Liberal Arts, the IU School of Nursing and the Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health. Its purpose is to enhance the knowledge and clinical skills of nurses, public healthcare providers, and other health professionals by promoting an awareness of intercultural relationships.
