Public Health and Social Medicine: A Focus on Disparities

Thread Description

The LACE public health thread titled ‘Public Health and Social Medicine: A Focus on Disparities’ is vital to exposing our students to a variety of foundational health care topics with a focus on community engagement integrated throughout. Topics include health policy, social determinants of health, ethics, health care systems, medical humanities, and preventive medicine. When linked to the Health Systems Science Projects, this core component of the medical school curriculum equips our future physicians and biomedical scientists to understand public health and improve the health of the community.
