PHS 204 Foundations in Global Health

Global health encompasses research and practice with a focus on Improving health and attaining quality and equitable health for all people. This course provides an overview of health-related challenges facing individuals in today’s connected and globalized world. Health issues will be approached from both individual and community perspectives with a focus on concepts of wellness and prevention. Emphasis will be placed on individual decision-making and understanding of biological, social, environmental, and other factors affecting health and wellness. We will also study the role of health behaviors and how they contribute to healthier lives. This course will have some purposeful overlap with PHS 203 Community Health but will look at health through a global lens.
