Health Disparities in Aging
Description 

The most striking health disparities in the United States are experienced by African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders, Asian Americans, disabled individuals, and individuals from low socioeconomic groups and rural populations. This course will focus on aging and health disparity as it relates to homeless, medically indigent, migrant and disabled populations. Course topics will increase awareness of the problems faced by these groups and the societal factors that create disparity. Students will identify solutions to help reduce and eliminate health disparities, expand minority health and health disparity research education, and provide information to these groups about intervention, prevention, and management of disease. Information from this course may be used to develop a capstone project. 1-3 credits.
