3.0 SH


During the course of the semester, students will examine health inequities; how race, ethnicity, racism and health intersect; explore the nature of racial and ethnic categories; learn about current US demographic trends; and critically examine the impact of institutionalized racism. Students will also explore approaches for addressing racial health inequity, including health care inequities. Students are encouraged to pay critical attention to the multiple pathways by which race enters the body, and how they lead to negative health consequences for people of color in the United States.
