    The Global Health program will address the intersection of health and social justice. This course will introduce students to leading health crises, explore individual and community health, and think critically about responses. Now more than ever, public health concerns are front page news. Students will explore the rise of the COVID-19 pandemic, the impact, as well as the social and medical solutions. Students will be challenged to think critically about the influence of society on health, how equity and access impact care, and how systems can be enhanced to better serve the health of a community. Led by Brandeis faculty, researchers, and doctoral students, the Global Health program will immerse students in challenging discussions. Students will be tasked with an in-depth capstone project which will be shared with fellow students on the session’s final afternoon.

    Students can expect to engage in synchronous, online learning. Synchronous lectures, simulations, tours, group discussions, and online polls will help students learn and explore public health issues facing the world today. Office hours with Teaching Assistants will support student project work. Students from around the world are invited to participate.
