GEOG 4349:Health Geography

3 Credit Hours
The geography of health considers impacts of natural, built, and social environments on human health. This course introduces students to three geographical contributions to health studies. First, it emphasizes the importance of ecological approaches of health, considering interactions between humans and their environments. Second, a geographical approach examines how aspects such as race, socioeconomic status, and identity influence human health. Third, it considers how spatial methods (cartography, GIS, and spatial statistics) help answer health-related questions.
