When: Wednesdays 7:10 - 9:40 pm

This class will use a case-based approach to explore the influence of human culture on health policy, management and practice, providing a background to the disparities in health found within the United States. In order to provide a unifying context for these explorations, the class will include a general introduction to global health. This introduction will identify the influences of culture, religion and resources on global health decisions as experienced by major health organizations. Some examples of the specific topics that this class will cover include population screening for disease and carrier predictions, domestic and global issues for newborns and adults, and geographical distributions of disease. All topics will integrate economic, technical, political, ethical and personal challenges experienced by a professional.

INDS 430: Science and Spirituality

News

This seminar course will combine
readings, written assignments and class discussions in order to help students
explore the interface between science and spiritual beliefs. Classes
will consider examples and insights from multiple disciplines, including
biology, psychology, mathematics, philosophy, music, art, history and more.
This course will not debate religion versus science; instead it will explore a
variety of different relationships that other minds have advocated over the
years.  In particular, the course will NOT seek to introduce any one
particular view as correct: instead, students will be encouraged to develop a
scholarly context for their own, personal view of the relationship between
these two ways of experiencing our place within reality.
