GHHE 000/5150 - Global Health Communication and Society (3 cr.)



Description
This advanced student-faculty research course offers opportunities for students to explore the role of grassroots education modalities, including entertainment-education, a strategy for promoting healthy behavior and well-being, reducing risk, primarily in developing countries. This course examines not only “behavior” change at the individual level, but also “development” change that emphasizes changing environments and contexts (such as poverty or gender relations) in different communities that are likely to affect sustainable change. Choosing their own critical topics, students craft multiple drafts of policy papers similar to those produced by the World Health Organization and design a campaign to inform target audiences at different education levels of society.
