WFQS 354 - Critical Issues in Women’s Health

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
(Same as STS 354 )  This course provides an overview of critical issues affecting women’s health in the United States. By identifying systemic reasons and historical contexts for women’s experience of bias and discrimination in healthcare, students gain an understanding of the gaps in medical  research, representation, and funding for women’s health. Review of such health conditions as endometriosis, heart disease, and autoimmune disorders provide pertinent examples. Students also discuss other current public health crises, such as the public health implications of abortion policies and the Black maternal health crisis. We consider health from biological, life course, and social determinants perspectives, including frameworks of women’s health disparities and intersectionality. Christie Van Horne.

One 2-hour period.
