MPH 204 - Social and Behavioral Determinants of Health


Semester Hours: 3


This course will examine the health status of populations within a social ecologic framework, examining how individual behavior, family and social networks, cultural practices and social factors, as well as public policies interact to influence and produce health in populations. Health education and health promotion theories will be discussed, and their application to public health interventions that aim to modify one or more levels of the social ecologic model will be analyzed using examples from the published literature. This course will follow a seminar format with student presentations of readings, interactive lecture, in-class small group work, and discussion.
