HLTH 670 - Gender and Health

Gender is one of the most researched factors affecting health status.  Studies on gender and helath have resulted in extensive discourse on men’s earlier mortality and  women’s higher rates of illness.  This course introduces participants to theories and to 
research regarding health differences and similarities between men and women.   Participants will critically examine the assumptions of gender and how these          
assumptions have health care consequences in their own, and other, cultures.  The expected outcome of this course is to promote awareness, critical thinking skills, and personal, autonomy related to gender health issues.
