HHE5140 Culture, Community, and Health

Course Description

This course examines the influence of culture and community on health status and health outcomes. We consider the multiple ways in which a broad range of social and cultural factors shape health, well-being, and healthy development, specifically with reference to the planning, implementation, and evaluation of health education programs. Taking stock of the current state of the U.S. health care system, we explore effective approaches to health education and the role of the health educator as agent of change.
