CHS 250: Applied Research in Health and Social Injustice

This course introduces the intersection of health and social justice issues. We will examine social determinants of health, population-based health disparities, and visions of health equity. After examining health disparities and their determinants, we will explore specific issues related to addressing health-related needs in multiple disparate and often considered "vulnerable" populations. We will also explore a range of research methods and approaches to health service provision that are responsive to the particular needs and situations of vulnerable groups.
