The Health Equity Micro-Minor engages students in questions surrounding the social and structural inequities that historically marginalized populations face when trying to achieve their full health potential.
Coursework is interdisciplinary, exploring diverse cultural perspectives on how health relates to the principles of social justice, ethics and human rights. Students also gain an in-depth understanding of health equity and related concepts.
The micro-minor requires three courses:
- one foundational class in health equity
- two electives, such as Race, Medicine and Public Health, Principles of Ethical Leadership or World on a Plate.
