New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2022

LACS 30.18 Migration, Gender and Health in Latinx Communities

This course uses an interdisciplinary approach to explore how Latinx people experience health inequities due to varying social inequalities across the life course. The course begins with a focus on the role Ethnic Studies and Latinx Studies can play towards improving the health conditions of Latinxs. Each subsequent section explores the social, economic, political and historical influences that place Latinx health in jeopardy. Sections of the course focus on Latinx migration and trauma, reproductive justice, workplace health hazards, nutrition and incarceration. The latter part of the course shifts to what can be done as a collective to improve the health and well-being of Latinx communities in the U.S.
