Rather than approaching the study of health from the perspective of specific medical conditions, diseases, or treatments, this course focuses on the political, social, cultural, and economic underpinnings contributing to women’s health and wellness. This course approaches the study of women’s health from both care and policy perspectives. Although specific medical concerns are addressed, these are introduced as exemplars to highlight the roles that critical theoretical analyses play in both defining and understanding women’s health issues, as well as their roles in finding solutions that will ensure women’s health and wellness.
