ABSTRACT  
Academic service-learning in public health education seems like a natural fit but it requires intentionality, strategy, 
and commitment to community engagement to ensure that both service and learning take place appropriately. 
The authors describe a process of implementing such a course using Kolb’s experiential learning model that 
helped highlight the importance of a reflective process for students, faculty, and community stakeholders while 
ensuring sustainable community-academic partnerships.
