HEST-195 Population Health Concepts and Contemporary Issues
Fall for 2017-2018
This course examines concepts and theories relevant to “healthy people in healthy communities”, and applies them to the health of populations. A broad definition of health determinants, the behavior of the public health system and an epidemiological approach provide the context within which to view prevention, analyze healthy versus unhealthy populations, the economic, political and social impact of health and disease, and the application of health policy. Societal values and social justice are used as the basis for examining health disparities. This course will integrate a service-learning component to enhance the application of theory to the health of populations.
