301.615.01 SEMINAR IN HEALTH DISPARITIES
- Thomas LaVeist
- Roland Thorpe
Students learn the nature of racial and ethnic disparities in health status, and become familiar with the research literature on race disparities. Students responsible to do all readings, contribute an annotated bibliography of research on a minority health topic selected by the students (with consent of the instructor) and produce a literature review on that topic.
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to: identify demographic and epidemiological patterns in health status by race, ethnicity, gender, and socioeconomic status; racial/ethnic disparities in access and quality of health care; identify theories explaining racial/ethnic disparities in health status and healthcare access and quality; conceptual models and frameworks for reducing and/or eliminating health status and healthcare disparities.
