Health Disparities

Description:
Health disparities in the United States are examined historically and within the context of global health, globalization, and neo-liberal economic and social ideology. Despite considerable progress in the overall health of the American population, disparities continue to exist, notable among ethno-racial groups and those at the lower end of the socio-economic scale. This course identifies and analyzes the complex causes of health disparities and surveys multi-level interventions, strategies and policy approaches to elimination disparities and improving health care outcomes for all. Students will critically analyze literature and materials relative to the broad range of topical areas covered across the course. Learning outcomes will position students to be informed and deliberative when planning programs, conduction research, participating in the policy process or otherwise working to mitigate or eliminate disparities in health care.
