 Critical Health Issues, HLTH 20500 is a 3 credit online Summer Course offer 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 auyash@ithaca.edu 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.

Come explore your voice in a fun, informal workshop with touring singer-songwriter Eli Conley at 12 noon on Friday April 17 in the Handwerker Gallery. Total beginners to experienced singers are welcome! Queer and transgender folks all too often find spaces focused on singing lacking relevance to our lives, awareness of our needs, and commitment to collective liberation. It is a powerful act for LGBTQ people and our straight and cisgender allies to find the power in our voices, listen deeply to each other as singers and raise our voices together in song.
