Explore health care delivery & conduct fieldwork

This two-credit, experiential program combines health equity studies with anthropological fieldwork aimed at improving people's lives and sustaining communities in North Brooklyn.

Every morning, you'll attend lectures by Weill Cornell Medicine faculty on the theory of health equity and medicine. You'll study the social determinants of health care, disparities in health care delivery and outcomes, and the conditions and processes you can put into place to increase health equity.

During afternoon sessions, you'll apply what you've learned in the classroom as you conduct fieldwork in North Brooklyn, meet with community leaders, and investigate how local communities are diminishing health disparities.

Finally, you'll write a case study addressing these issues and reflect on what you have learned.
