This course will introduce basic issues that underlie health disparities, with a focus on the connection between racism and health disparities in the U.S.
Dates: May 18 - June 26, 2020
This course will engage students in the roots of historic and current racism and how it generates different health related outcomes for underrepresented minorities. We will cite multiple factors that lead to health disparities moving from personal identities and their influence, to examples of systemic oppression and their culpability, to implicit bias' profound effect on health care. We will also evaluate and discuss plausible solutions.
This course is instructor-paced with weekly assignments. Assignments include quizzes, written reflection, online discussion, and a final paper. Students are expected to engage with the material, the instructor, and each other.
