My Bass Connections Pathway

September 1, 2015

Hanzhang Xu is participating in the Bass Connections project team Community Care of Frail Elders in Cross-cultural Settings: A Team-based Approach.

"It’s really a fascinating experience for me. I wouldn’t exactly say I’m mentoring [the undergraduates on the team] although I’m a graduate student and they’re undergrads—I see them as my colleagues. Because I have a nursing background and they’re from other disciplines, it’s really interesting because at first they didn’t know much about dementia care and I needed to explain it. Also they’re not familiar with the care setting in China, and from a cultural perspective I needed to explain. They also inspire me a lot."
