Effective Leadership in Assessing and Addressing Health Inequities




This introductory course will use interdisciplinary, critical, and transnational/global perspectives to study the impacts of leadership in public health that specifically affect equal access to healthcare centering on gender, race, age, socioeconomic status, level of education, class, sexual identity, and “differently able” persons or persons with disabilities. The content will examine four main topics to be discussed in separate but interconnected sections centering on Effective Leadership in Assessing and Addressing Public Health Inequities: (1) managing non-profits and for-profits, grassroots leadership, coalitions, and empowerment; (2) embracing diversity, equity, and inclusion; (3) crisis management regarding health inequities; (4) a new vision for public health equity.The course will introduce theory and research through readings and lectures. However, the bulk of each session will employ individual and team-based learning centering on case analysis; creating a real-world environment and experience. Cases will be comprised of a variety of leadership situations in diverse settings specific to public health.
