BCHS 7351 - RACE/ETHNICITY GENDER AND HEALTH DISPARITIES

[3 Credits]
This course will explore the interconnection between race/ethnicity, gender and health by examining theoretical and research paradigms from sociology, anthropology, policy studies and public health. The course will explore how race/ethnicity and gender are shaped by political, social, economic, geographical and organizational factors and contribute to variations in health outcomes according to social class, geographical location, and social economic position. Class activities include: 1) class discussion with regard to how race/ethnicity and gender translate into unequal distribution of power that simultaneously operate at both the macro (societal) and micro (individual) levels of society; 2) data collection approaches and analytical methods to identify and understand links between race/ethnicity, gender and health; and 3) discussions concerning the role of public health in identifying ways to utilize emerging research regarding race/ethnicity, gender and health to advance public health research and practice.
