Course Description

Health professionals understand that human behaviors impact health and well-being. This course will take a multidisciplinary approach to understanding the impact of human behaviors on health, and explore foundational concepts - for example, "stress" - from a variety of social science perspectives. We will discuss the work of researchers and practitioners which investigates the influences and interactions of psychological, cultural, and biological factors on well-being and promoting healthful change. Students gain analytical skills to think critically about the behavioral determinants of health.
