Community Health Advocacy

Quarter-long course
Community Health Advocacy
This three-quarter series, Community Engaged Learning (CEL) course provides students with specific knowledge and skills for working with, and advocating for underserved, socially disadvantaged populations. Through coursework and placement in a domestic violence community service agency, students broaden and deepen their understanding of the Social Determinants of Health (SDoH), health inequalities, and inequities. Students will learn conceptual frameworks for SDoH, how they impact underserved populations, and most importantly, how to effectively partner with a community organization to create change. Students will participate in weekly activities to support their placement organization, designing and implementing a service or capacity-building project. Classroom sessions serve as a forum for teaching and training, discussion of class readings and placement experiences, project development, and troubleshooting and support. This class has been designated a Cardinal Course by the Haas Center for Public Service.
