This course is intended to create a forum for student discussion on topics in student health and modern healthcare, and also to provide a platform for students to venture into health journalism.
The Student Health and Journalism DeCal will consist of two components:
a. Health Topic Surveillance: Each week, we will engage student in a discussion of a health topic that relates most to the student population (especially to Cal students, but perhaps to high school students as well). Students are required to participate. We will often invite guest speakers to lead the discussion.
b. Writing for Sather Health: As associate writers for satherhealth.org students are expected to routinely contribute articles and blogs. They will compose and peer-edit these items according to a preset schedule and eventually have them uploaded onto our course website.
By the end of the course, we expect students to become more familiar with salient student health issues. They will also gain valuable experience writing in a way that is appropriate for public health journalism through the articles and blogs.
The CCN this semester is 42676, and the decal is 1 unit.
