 Critical Health Issues, HLTH 20500 is a 3 credit online Summer Course offered during the two week May Session.  ICC Attribute: Diversity. Social Science. Self and Society. ICC Theme: World of Systems.

Below is a summary of the course content. Please contact Stewart Auyash at for more information.

Critical Health Issues is about the evolution and analysis of U.S. health policy and the provision of health services, a vast enterprise that includes all sectors of government and industry.  In the U.S.,  health and medical establishments account for about 1 out of every 10 workers and about 17 cents out of every dollar spent. Even with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, there are still more than 25 million people without insurance.  Health is also about racial, gender, ethnic, and class issues, as well as the quality of services received and overall health status. The poor, immigrants, and minorities are also affected by inequalities. Poverty is increasing in the U.S. and this affects health.

War,Hunger, and Genocide: An International Health Perspective will be offered online during Summer Session II beginning on June 29- July 31.  

Attributes: (ICC) - Humanities, Liberal Arts,  - Social Sciences,

Themes: Power and Justice AND Quest Sustainable Future 

Course description: An investigation of the cost -- human and economic -- of organized violence, including genocide, and the efforts being made to ameliorate or eliminate the devastation. Particular emphasis is placed on the role that can be played by health care professionals who believe that war may be a preventable phenomenon that can be eradicated by traditional public health methods that have triumphed over other major health problems in the past. 3 credits
