Course description

At this time of the intersection of movements associated with Black Lives Matter, COVID 19, questionable policing, and massive unemployment (Pandemic Recession), students carry out a case study of COVID-19 social determinants of health and inequities through exposure to diverse perspectives and, using Zoom, enter into discussions with Weill Cornell Medicine faculty and New York City community advocates. Students assess the viewpoint of each speaker and create a personal narrative, a reflection that uncovers their own point of view regarding the social determinants of health and inequities.
