PUBH6713: Global Health in a Local Context

3 Credits

Global Health in a Local Context: An experiential course on the social determinants, health equity, and leading change in Minnesota immerses students in the study of health equity, the social determinants of health, the principles and practice of global health in a local setting, and community-based healthcare. The discipline of social medicine provides a theoretical and practical framework to explore these topics. This course draws on the social sciences and social epidemiology to forge understandings of the social determinants of health; integrates the voice and decision-making power of individuals, families, and communities; is multidisciplinary and multisectoral in its responses; ensures an equity agenda; and is guided by deep, multi-faceted encounters with local contexts.
