ENVS 328 Health and the Global Environment (4)

This course explores the interconnectedness of the environment, society, and health through a geographic lens. We will examine how geography has been used to understand disease patterns and outbreaks, access to health care, health inequality, and the impact of the environment on health. We will uncover how environmentally-mediated disease and health are represented and understood at multiple scales, the structural conditions leading to the varying levels of health we find in our communities and in our world, and how power relations impact and shape health possibilities in communities.
