Health Matters: Health Innovation and Communication

PWR 1KSB - Spring 2017 - Instructor: Savelson, K.

A guide to resources for PWR 1KSB: Health Matters: Health Innovation and Communication. The premise of the course is that "health" needs to be defined and studied in context  What is health? Is this a medical question, or a cultural, political, or ethical question? While we cannot universally define "health," it's now a legal issue as well.
