Course Description: This course is an introduction and overview of the social determinants of health. Course materials allow students to gain an overview of causes that lead to good or poor health outcomes for individuals and populations. Analysis of health issues is considered at the individual, interpersonal, community, institutional and global levels. A special emphasis is placed on social factors that cause health inequities such as race, culture, economy, geography, political, social bonds, gender, and the health system. Addressing the social context of health disparities is approached with the use of health behavior change models and interventions along with the application of theories used to describe health initiatives. Students are exposed to multiple social influences that affect health and are also able to explore specific causes of health outcomes in their area of interest.
