Description

What impacts our health? Why do some people seem to have better health than others? Why do different individuals have different health outcomes? In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever that we understand why we have continued health disparities, and what we can do to improve health and healthcare conditions, for everyone. In this course, we will investigate these questions and what contributes to health disparities, at three different levels: the individual, interpersonal and societal. Concepts such as critical race theory and intersectionality will be woven throughout the course to further inform our understanding.



Course Requirements:

Students will be evaluated on various in-class activities and discussion participation. This class will not have exams, instead students will work throughout the semester on a project related to course topics. Feedback will be provided throughout the semester at various stages of the project, culminating in a final paper and presentation. All course materials will be available for free on Canvas.

Class Format:

This course will be a hybrid of lecture and discussion.
