This seminar will expose students in a dynamic, problem oriented set of exercises, discussions, and interactive activities to the basic principles, concepts, and operational definitions of global health, equity, social justice, global health diplomacy and global research ethics. Students will visit a local site and analyze first-hand global health equity problems and propose solutions. To enhance the global context of the class, joint exercises and collaborations with a health class for education majors in Quito, Ecuador at the Universidad San Francisco de Quito are planned. (Spanish language knowledge is not required.)

Textbooks: 1) Global Health 101 (Richard Skolnick, 2011). 2) Cases in Global Health (Ruth Levine, 2007). A portion of the syllabus will include assignments common to other MISU seminars, and there will also be several meetings that bring together students from several seminars. Grade will be based on class participation, completion of homework assignments, a project paper and brief oral presentations, and final exam.

Intended Audience:

Students who have taken Introduction to Public Health, or students interested in health, business, policy, engineering, or any other discipline are welcome. Registration preference will be given to Sophomores.
