The school will also offer home stays in Everett and the Tri-Cities, and match students with host families to guide students who stay in Spokane during those weeks. There will be about 15 of the school’s 60 students assigned to each city.“We want to give them great examples of how communities pull together and deliver great health care even in the case of restrictions,” he said.Participating families in all four cities are expected to introduce students to five involved community members, as well as organize activities to share the community with students. That can be a meal out, a visit to a local museum or a hike on a local trail, according to the school’s website.last_img read more
