One Health: Human, Animal, and Environmental Health in the Anthropocene

This course provides a detailed overview of the history, utility, application, and future of the One Health paradigm. One Health describes the interconnections of human, wildlife, domestic animal, and ecosystem health and takes an inclusive approach to the study of broad determinants and indicators of health across species and biomes.


Global Health Disparities

This class explores crucial questions about health, well-being, medicine, environment, gender, race, and social inequality in the twenty-first century. We will 1) cover basic principles in medical anthropology and public health to provide a common grounding; 2) survey the state of health disparities across the globe related to both communicable and non-communicable diseases; and 3) cover Indigenous health and health disparities with a particular focus on medical pluralism, or multiple overlapping medical/healthcare systems and understandings of disease causation and treatment.
