Public Health

Program Description

"Introduction to Public Health" introduces the many areas of the public health system, and the work in measuring health, disease and illness, and its endeavors to promote population health.

This course provides a history of public health. It offers learners a methodology for understanding populations and population health through multiple disciplines.

It provides an overview of five core disciplines: epidemiology, biostatistics, environmental health, social and behavioral health, and health policy and management. Students analyze contemporary public health issues such as threats to the nation's food supply, health promoting behaviours in the prevention of disease, the burden and distribution of infectious diseases on a global population, public health's role in disaster preparedness and management, and bioterrorism. This engages issues of public health administration and the public health workforce. Students learn about public health nursing and public health education. They explore the role of law and government (local, state, national, and international) in public health and challenging public health policy issues related to spiraling healthcare costs and addressing the aging population. Students examine environmental and occupational health, and they learn about future challenges for public health.
