Section Description

This course is one for RN to BS students designed to prepare students for development of a understanding and action plan related to health disparities, from structural deficits to marginalization, subtler prejudices, to policy issues that affect them and us as we try to build a more peaceful and unified world. We will learn how violence and racism affect health and what can be done about it from within the structures we have now. or the ones we want to build. We will also examine our own actions as they affect our own well being and that of others.

Section Expectation

The course will be lengthened to fill the summer but can be taken in smaller bites until completed by August 11, 2017. There will be no delays. The end will be an excellent show of some aspect of the course involving multi media and put up for grading based on faculty impact.


Students will be asked to write weekly responses to classmates, take a weekly quiz on written material, write a reflection at the end, and complete the final project. All work will be evaluated for completeness, accuracy, clarity, and impact of work. The answers to the quiz questions will be graded.
