Understanding and Overcoming Health Care Disparities  --  Public Health  (PB HLTH) 221B [2 units]
Course Format: Two hours of lecture/discussion per week.
Prerequisites: Graduate standing or consent of instructor.
Description: In this class, we will construct a framework to formulate explanations for health care disparities and to construct responses that have the potential for a policy-oriented, and therefore widespread, response. Taking advantage of selected developments in social science theory and research that can provide insight into how health care disparities come about, we will draw from anthropological and psychological theories of cultural orientation, cultural framing of problems, and cultural identity; as well as drawing from psychological theories of stress and coping. We also will draw from sociological theories of individual and community poverty, and theories characterizing health care system design and service delivery.
