VTPMD 6102 - Public Health Foundations II

Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: VTPMD 6101 . Enrollment limited to: MPH students; and Graduate students by permission of instructor.

G. Safi, I. Weisfuse.

This course will reinforce and expand upon learning from Public Health Foundations I by addressing the multi level drivers of health and behavior from genetics to Planetary Health considerations. A solutions focus with attention to social determinants of health and an expanded socio-ecologic model will drive the course conceptually. We will address the ways these multi level drivers can be a source for interventions, give attention to the scale and impact of these interventions, and discuss reasons for their success or failure. Students will further develop their public health competence through a variety of presentations, papers and projects by applying key concepts and systems thinking to assess and address issues of public health importance domestically and globally.
