Interested in public health, cardiovascular disease, or interacting with community members? Join the iHeart Health: Education for Heart Disease Prevention Decal! This course was born to implement a community-based model to address a prevailing health issues in the Bay Area population. It is designed to help students who are interested in addressing the public health issues of multiple ethnic minority groups through bi-monthly health clinics for their community and learning about heart health awareness through an academic lens. Anyone is welcome to join :)
Student Learning Outcomes:
1) Students will learn how to critically read newspaper articles and scientific papers.
2) Students will integrate knowledge from readings, presentations, and discussions into their health education materials.
3) Students will also gain hands-on experience by volunteering in community health clinics.
Because this is an interactive and participatory course that only meets once a week, attendance is very important and will be required! Students will have an opportunity to sign in both before and after class to mark their attendance.
Students can have up to 3 unexcused absences.
Students will be asked to write a 1 page (double-spaced) reading reflection based on the week’s assigned readings. The reading reflections must engage with at least two of the assigned readings for that week. The assigned readings that need to be completed per week can be found in the syllabus.
Students will be required to go to a minimum of 2 off-campus clinics during the semester (transportation will be taken care of). These off-campus clinics will be graded on the basis of attendance.
There are NO FINAL EXAMS OR PAPERS for this course.
