MHEO 420 Socio-Structural Determinants of Health

This course engages a social-ecological model to examine determinants of health at multiple levels, including biological, behavioral and cultural, social and community-based, environmental, occupational, and institutional. Through a root cause analysis of morbidity and mortality trends, students identify sociostructural determinants of health and analyze systems of oppression that produce and reproduce health inequities. These include disadvantages and marginalization based on race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, religion, disability, nationality, and other factors.
