Course Description

PHE 100
Theories and Praxis of Health Equity
Spring

Health inequities regard avoidable disparities in health outcomes between groups of people. Students will study how social, economic, environmental and legal factors shape health inequities. They will explore how the uneven distribution of power and wealth and ongoing systems of oppression contribute to health inequities. Students will study strategies for reducing health disparities, including those generated by a range of marginalized groups, and consider a human rights framework for dealing with national and global health concerns.
