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.
