Population Dynamics and Health

This course seeks to develop understanding of the central concepts and processes of population change—fertility, mobility, and mortality —and the ability to apply these concepts to historic and emergent health conditions and issues. Particular attention is given to explorations of such life stage topics as maternal and child health, family and workforce health, and later life health, with focus on the interplay between individual health behavior development and broader population health implications.
