INSTRUCTOR: Brenda Luna
SCHEDULE: Tuesday, Thursday, 9:30AM – 10:50AM (Hybrid – Summer B)
This course examines the relationships between human health and the environment. Students will explore the role of the natural and built environment and their impact on their health, as well as their local and global community’s health. Using an interdisciplinary perspective, we will explore illnesses linked with environmental factors such as contamination. This multidisciplinary course will draw from the fields of medicine, public health (global health, behavioral health, environmental health, epidemiology, and health policy), environmental sociology, and ecology to investigate global health threats such as climate change, and pollution.
This course is designed for students of all majors.
