Global-Local Course

September 5, 2015

The University of Minnesota’s Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility (CGHSR) in partnership with the organization SocMed is pleased to offer, Global Health in a Local Context: The Social Determinants, Community Engagement, and Social Action in Minnesota, a new course to be offered in the Fall semester of 2016. This course will immerse students in the study of health equity, the social determinants of health, global health in a local setting, and community-based healthcare. The course curriculum will be modeled on the highly successful and dynamic SocMed curriculum currently utilized annually in Uganda and Haiti, which offers a highly experiential, interdisciplinary, and inter-professional study of these topics.
