NDET 6215E - Race and Disparities in Health Care


Credit(s): 2.00

This course provides an overview of health disparities along racial and ethnic categories. We will seek to understand how political, economic and social contexts shape health, access to healthcare, and the quality of care across racial and ethnic groups. This course also explores the socio-scientific processes that have privileged “innate” difference as explanations for inequality and marginalization; and examine ways in which “race” intersects with other categories of difference, such as gender, class, sexuality and religion to impact one’s health and one’s access to health care. This course addresses the implications of this framework for understanding health inequality and how we choose to address it. Note: This course is open to students, staff and faculty.
