Beginning in 2019, WUPT’s new student orientation added a St. Louis tour of the predominantly African-American neighborhoods in north St. Louis near the School of Medicine campus to help visually connect the link between environment and poor health and provide additional lessons about social determinants of health. By increasing awareness of the vast inequities within St. Louis and discussing how they influence health, future physical therapists can better understand their roll in connecting with the entire community.
