There is an educational component to all Gesundheit projects—the books, movies, lectures, clowning, global outreach, the model hospital project. In addition, Gesundheit hosts events focused on education—at the site of the future hospital and elsewhere—in the form of medical student electives, summer institutes, health care system design intensives, and conferences.

Desire & Design: Construct Your Humanism
July 8-12, 2022 | Hillsboro, WV
This summer, 2022, we invite participants to gather—mindful of safety!—in person on the land in West Virginia for five days of putting our minds and hearts together. The intensive will consist of daily presentations, small group discussions, dining together outdoors and on the porch. We’ll provide tools and constraints for designing interventions in systems and constructing action plans towards a desirable society.
The Laughing Body: the Art of Care
We invite you to spend a week dedicated to reflection, play, and rediscovering the joyful and creative potential of our body and of our inner Nature (our soul), while basking in the wonderful outdoors of the Gesundheit Institute in beautiful West Virginia.
