2018 Fall semester course PA 8461- Global & US Perspectives on Health & Mortality (3 cr Tues/Thurs 1:00 -2:15pm).    

This is an introductory course for Master and Doctoral students. The health of populations in developing and developed countries is very different. When crafting policies (or working on research questions) that aim to improve population health, it is crucial to know how to measure health and how to think about the health needs of the specific population in question. This course will provide an overview to the factors driving health, mortality, and aging across different populations. In addition, students will learn the best sources of data and measures to use to describe the health status of a population. Furthermore, students will be able to assess policy options that address the health of their population.

This course fulfills concentration requirements in Social Policy, Advanced Policy Analysis, Global Policy, and the university wide graduate minor in population studies.
