VTPMD 6101 - Public Health Foundations I

Fall. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Enrollment limited to: MPH students; and Graduate students by permission of instructor.

G. Meredith, G. Safi, A. Travis, I. Weisfuse.

This course will introduce students to the history and role of public health, and will set the foundation of public health practice on the two guiding paradigms: the 10 essential public health functions, and the One Health/Planetary Health approach to public health prevention and problem solving. Students build their public health competency via investigating a breadth of public health issues, including both chronic and infectious disease, and the impact of our environment and climate on disease spread, acquisition, and impact.
