PPS 350 - Health Disparities in America: Policy Implications


Health disparities are differences in the burden of disease felt by particular communities of people, as defined by racial/ethnic, socioeconomic and other demographic characteristics. This course will explore the contribution to these disparities from social factors such as limitations in access to medical care or other social resources as well as from human perceptions and other daily stressors. Although little is known about which policies work best to reverse the impact of disparities on health, this course will engage in active debate and consideration of proposals. Cross-listed as PHS 350 . Prerequisites: PHS 101, PHS 330 . (3)
