Critical Health Issues, HLTH 20500 is a 3 credit online Summer Course offered during the May 2017 session.  ICC Attribute: Diversity. Social Science. Self and Society. ICC Theme: World of Systems.

Do you have health insurance? Should everyone? What are the current conflicts about health care in the US today?  

 Health: the state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.  And so much more.  Health is: nurses, doctors, and hospitals. And so much more...neighborhoods, food, income, education, race, and so much more.  Join this class to discuss these issues and more in the context of health.

Please contact Stewart Auyash at auyash@ithaca.edu for more information. 

SLI credit available in the student leadership category
