Global Environmental Public Health

SAR HS 345

Environmental health is associated with recognizing, assessing, understanding, and controlling the impacts of people in their environment and the impacts of the environment on the public health. The complexity of the problems requires multidisciplinary approaches. This course provides an introduction to the principles, methods, and issues related to global environmental health. It examines health issues, scientific understanding of causes, and possible future approaches to control of the major environmental health problems internationally. Topics include how the body reacts to environmental pollutants; physical, chemical, and biological agents of environmental contamination; vectors for dissemination (air, water, soil); solid and hazardous waste; susceptible populations; bio-markers and risk analysis; the scientific basis for policy decisions; risk communication; and emerging global environmental health problems. 4 cr. Tuition: $2480

Summer 1 (May 20-June 24)

Non-Infectious Diseases

SAR HS 450

Prereq: juniors and seniors only. Examines the five most prevalent non-communicable diseases (diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, upper respiratory diseases, mental disorders), which account for nearly 60% of all deaths in the world and 80% in the developing world. Despite the enormous global burden of non-infectious (or non-communicable) diseases, adequate programs for prevention and treatment do not exist and challenges faced are complex. This course uses a life course perspective to focus on the preventable risk factors (diet, exercise, tobacco, alcohol, lifestyle), growing burden of disease, and current issues and challenges in control. 4 cr. Tuition: $2480
