URBS201 - URBAN HEALTH SYSTEMS

Course Description: 
This course views health care from the perspective of social justice by exploring political, social, racial/ethnic, and economic factors that impact access to care. It incorporates a broad, ecological definition of health (beyond the medical model) and focuses on urban populations disproportionately affected by health care disparities. A broad range of issues, interventions, and interrelationships are discussed; these include infant mortality, childhood asthma, violence, substance abuse, diet-related disease, and mental illness. Guest speakers who are key figures in the Philadelphia area are invited for class presentations.
