SOCY477- Intersectionality and Illness- Summer Session I-B

Students who would like to explore a sociological approach to understanding health disparity can now register for SOCY479: Intersectionality and Illness, offered online this summer (June 17th - July 5th). 

Students will examine the social determinants of disease: the relationship between socioeconomic status and health care access, as well as investigate the links between social status and disease chronicity. Students will also explore how health disparities, health resource distribution, and susceptibility disproportionately affect disadvantaged communities with chronic diseases. 
Departmental permission to register for the course can be granted by calling 301-405-6389, for students who lack the prerequisite of (6) credits of SOCY coursework.
