Course Description

P8750 Race and Health

Credits: 1

Health disparities between members of different racial ethnic groups have increasingly become major policy concerns, and understanding how race/ethnicity influences health behavior are core topics for discussion, study, and review in this course. This course is designed to provide students with an introduction to the public health literature on race and ethnicity. Students will examine the relationship between racial classification systems, race, and health status, and they will have an opportunity to discuss the critical contributions to the field of eliminating health disparities. Students will be exposed to a variety of interventions and policies that provide us with an opportunity to end racial disparities in health.
