PH 310 - Social Foundations of Population Health


4 credit(s)
Despite popular conceptions that health status is directly attributable to medical care, other factors such as behavior, social circumstances, and environment exert greater influence on population health. This course introduces students to these social determinants of health - the ways that social processes affect health, with special attention to disparate health status among population groups based on categories such as gender, socioeconomic status, and race/ethnicity/nativity. Major topics include the pursuit of health equity in public health practice and public policy as a driver of community health.
Prerequisite(s): PH 101 , ANTH 101 , SOC 110 , SOC 120 , SOC 130 , or SOC 150
