SFU CITY110: Fundamentals of Public Health in Cities SFU Continuing Studies Oct 18, 2022 : 6:00 pm to Nov 8, 2022 : 8:30 pm

This course is 4 evenings starting October 18. Please see schedule below.

Health is a cornerstone of livability in any town or city. This course will introduce you to the discipline of public health and its role in shaping, planning and building heathier communities. You will explore the three main branches of the field: infectious disease prevention, environmental health, and health promotion, and how they shape neighbourhood patterns. Using health data, you’ll consider the impacts of health inequities on individuals and communities and the resulting policy implications. You’ll also review real-life public health challenges and solutions, and consider the policy dilemmas in everyday life, and most acutely, in public health emergencies.
