BPH 210 - Health Disparities and Social Justice

Is health a human right? If so, what role does society have in ensuring that every person has an equal opportunity to health? This course develops students’ understanding of health disparities across social, economic and cultural groups as well as strategies to reduce those disparities. Students learn how the marginalization of populations based on race, ethnicity, class, gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, immigration status and other factors affects health behavior and health status. Through a framework of social justice, the course considers how a more equitable distribution of social, economic, and political resources can address the social determinants of health and achieve health equity.
