Global Health Issues in Disease Prevention
This course provides an in-depth review of how global health-based strategies are used in the prevention of disease and disability in diverse populations. Students explore global health topics and disease prevention activities from the perspective of understanding the determinants of health. Using a cross-disciplinary approach, students examine how economics, social factors, cultural competency, health literacy, health policy, urbanization, globalization, the environment, and other factors influence disease. Students consider how research in disease prevention, health determinants, cultural ecology and global health applies to public and community health efforts.
