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 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.

How should we treat nature?  Is nature just a resource for humans to use for their benefit, or should we see nature as something more than just a resource -- as, say, a source of value in our its own right that deserves our respect and protection?  This class will answer that question affirmatively, and examine what the ideal of respect for nature entails.  We will reflect on our relation to non-human animals, on our relation to all living things (whether plant or animals), and even on our relation to inanimate parts of nature such as ecosystems.  We will ask what forms of human behavior are inconsistent with respect for nature, and what to do when economic goals and environmental goals clash.
