Title: Global Health
Course Section Number: GHL-177-01
Department: Global Health
Description: The multidisciplinary issues of global health confront everyone on the planet. This course will introduce critical issues and key themes in global health from basic principles to disease burden to collaborative efforts to improve global health. Particular attention will be given to the global burden of communicable and non-communicable disease and the social determinants of health, including intersections with poverty and racism. Cultural, economic and ethical issues in global health will be discussed. An immersion component following this class is planned for travel to Peru, July 29 -- August 10, 2022 (dates subject to change), and will involve travel to urban, mountain, and rainforest areas. Students should expect to make a modest financial contribution toward the trip. Grades for this course will be recorded as "incompletes" until after the immersion trip. Enrollment in the course is limited, competitive, and by application through the instructor; contact Prof. Eric Wetzel ( if interested. This course counts toward the Global Health minor; however, it does NOT count toward the major in Biology. STUDENTS MUST BE FULLY VACCINATED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE IMMERSION COMPONENT OF THIS COURSE.
