Global Public Health

Global public health is a study of the biological, socioeconomic and environmental contributors to health and disease in populations around the world.  Students will investigate the determinants of health, how health status is measured, and will review the burden of disease, risk factors and approaches to global cooperation to address health problems within and between nations for successful interventions. Specific issues underlying strategies and organization for health care delivery and health services will be discussed and linked to community service projects that aim to develop social responsibility through civic engagement and humanitarian activities. Satisfies a Mathematics/Science distribution requirement.
