305.684.11 HEALTH IMPACT ASSESSMENT
Introduces students to Health impact assessment (HIA), which is an approach that informs decision-makers about the potential health impacts of proposed projects, programs, and policies that do not traditionally focus on health outcomes (e.g. education or housing), but are likely to affect the public’s health. Focuses on the application of HIA for policymaking. Students study the rationale for conducting HIAs, review a range of analytic methods used to conduct HIAs, analyze cases from international and domestic settings, and walk through the steps of how to conduct a HIA.
