Opportunity for freshmen and sophomores interested in the social, cultural and political aspects of medicine, biology and public health.
To all freshmen and sophomores interested in the social, cultural and political aspects of medicine, biology and public health:
The Center for Peace & Global Citizenship (CPGC) will again be sponsoring a student-led Seminar on Social Medicine during the spring semester. This non-credit seminar will give students the opportunity to explore, along with a group of interested peers, a variety of cross-disciplinary perspectives on health and human rights, social medicine, public health and science & society. Topics will include: defining social medicine; inequalities and structural violence; cultural perspectives on health; issues in global health and its delivery; medical ethics; and action and activism.
A team of students from the senior class will serve as seminar leaders, with mentorship by Pre-Health Advisor Michele Taylor.
Students will meet six times during the spring semester (Feb 20, Feb 27, March 20, March 27, April 3 and April 10). In addition to the discussion sessions, there are plans to arrange a live satellite video conference with public health practitioners overseas. All costs associated with participation in the seminar are paid by the CPGC.
If you are interested but are unable to make this meeting, please contact the CPGC at firstname.lastname@example.org
