Honors College Clay Fellow: Featured Course

Global Public Health Structures on the Brink

Have you wondered how emergent disease and public health emergencies start and grow? This class will offer a nuanced look at how differing systems interact to impede or accelerate policy responses to situations that push health care systems to their limits. This course will explore the principles and systems of public health across borders, including community and individual health outcomes globally.  We will dive into how health determinants and economic disparities; access to clean water, safe food, a healthy environment, and reliable sanitation; levels of health literacy and trust in science; and disease prevalence are dependent upon geography, chance, and socioeconomic position.
