PH 595: Human Health and Illness
This course is designed to engage students in critical thinking and discussion about population health and health disparities and to provide students with an understanding of how social factors contribute to racial/ethnic, socioeconomic, and other disparities in health and health care. We will also examine ways in which neighborhood and community context, as well as inequalities in socioeconomic status shape health and access to health care services. This class will also explore various human diseases and the role of the health educator/promoter in primary and tertiary prevention. The class is taught through a combination of lecture instruction, engaged discussion, critiquing of journal articles, film viewing, in-class exercises, and student presentations.
