UMD HLTH 602 Entire Class
University of Maryland HLTH 602 Global Health and Social Justice Entire Class
Evaluates the relationship between social justice and population health through critical discourse analysis of social determinants of health and applications of community-based methods for reducing population health inequities within and across national borders. The class aims to stimulate students’ critical analysis to identify, describe, measure, and apply the consequences of injustices in population ill-health exposures and practices (policies, interventions, and services). Students will apply critical thinking about how social injustices create preventable health disparities, unequal social determinants, poor environmental exposures, and diseases among vulnerable populations in much of low-income countries.
Note: This entire class includes discussions, assignments, course projects, and exams.
