DDHA 8050 - Global Health and Issues in Disease Prevention


(5 cr.) Students are provided with an in-depth review of how global health-based strategies are used in the prevention of disease and disability in diverse populations. They 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. They consider how research in disease prevention, health determinants, cultural ecology, and global health applies to public and community health efforts.
