FALL 2016
HTS 3823: Special Topics Course - Health Inequality
T/Th 12:05 - 1:25 pm
Professor Jennifer Singh PhD, MPH -jennifer.singh@hsoc.gatech.edu

This course is designed to investigate social conditions such as poverty, social isolation, and segregation as well as ascribed characteristics of gender and race that are predictive of a battery of contemporary chronic diseases and causes of premature death. Topics will cover health inequalities in the U.S., selective global perspectives, and policy efforts to eliminate health inequalities. Intended to be far more than a simple lecture course, the class will provide students with numerous opportunities to deeply engage with the course material through response memos, small group discussions, conversations with experts on course topics, and an independent (group) research project. This course qualifies as an elective for the Health, Medicine and Society (HMS) Minor in the School of History and Sociology.
