Race/Ethnicity and Health

[ Previous | Index | Next ]

Sociology 596

3 credit hours, offered annually

This course offers a critical examination of the health status of the major racial/ethnic minority groups in the United States. Attention will be focused on the patterned ways in which the health of these groups is embedded in the social, cultural, political, and economic contexts and arrangements of U.S. Society. Topics include the meaning and measurement of race, the ways in which racism affects health, the historic uses of minorities in medical research, how acculturation and migration affects health, social class differentials in health, and an examination of specific health problems that disproportionately affect minority group members.
