Global Perspectives on Health: Exploring the intersection of Equity, Economics, and Culture

This course brings together undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students to compare and contrast local population health priorities and challenges from a global health perspective. The course emphasizes the population health sphere of influence and utilizes the United Nations Millennium Development Goals and US Department of Health and Human Services Healthy People 2020 as a framework to explore global health. The focus is on synthesizing knowledge from a variety of interdisciplinary empirical and theoretical literature to better understand the social, political, economic, cultural and environmental issues that affect the health of all of us. Students deepen their knowledge and appreciation of global health, health disparities, human rights and cultural humility. Students will learn how culture as a way of knowing imposes its structure on individual and population health.
