LLS 1305 - One World United in Health

Credits: 3 hrs.
If you found yourself saddened by the news of injuries in Haiti (or anywhere else on the globe) but asked yourself the question, What does that have to do with me?, then this course will help answer that question.  Globalization of healthcare is one of the most current and controversial topics because while people understand there are global health issues, they do not know exactly what can be done.  This course will help you understand the connections between societal inequalities in housing, finance, safety, and education and poor health outcomes both at home and across the globe.   You will cultivate the notion of global citizenship and explore challenges to engaging in transnational efforts to improve global health.
