The Health minor offers students the opportunity to explore the field of health from a multidisciplinary perspective.
This course provides an introduction to complementary and alternative medicine and the treatment modalities that are increasingly being used by Americans. Students will explore the conceptual differences between the biomedical approach and alternative systems of healthcare, some of which are being used in conjunction with allopathic medicine by conventional medical practitioners. Topics will include but are not limited to mind-body interventions, biologically based treatments, and energy based therapies.
This course is designed to explore and analyze selected topics in health that affect women's lives from adolescence through old age. It places women's health issues in context with their individual biological and psychosocial development, their family roles, and their roles in the larger society. The multicultural focus is on differences women in the United States experience due to race/ethnicity and sociocultural differences. Obstacles to optimum health for minority women in the United States are examined.
