NU 210 Public Health: Disease Prevention & Health Promotion (Fall: 3)
Satisfies Social Sciences Core Requirement
This course presents public health as an integration of disciplinary science
and the methods used to study factors affecting health and illness in local
and global populations. Interventions using epidemiology, health promotion,
and disease prevention models are presented, using the core functions of
public health (assessment, assurance, and policy development) to assimilate
principles of biology, sociology, and philosophy. Emerging infectious and
non-infectious health concerns will be addressed across investigation and
surveillance approaches, including statistical models to test hypotheses.
Emphasis will be placed on social justice and health as it relates to outreach,
collaboration, coalition building, and community organizing.
