HUMBIO 29: Introduction to Global Health

The class is an introduction to the field of global health. It focuses on resource-poor areas of the world and explores how human health is affected by poverty, international policy, planetary health, economic development, human rights, and power imbalances. We will examine global health from broad perspectives: historical, cultural, political, demographic, economic and biomedical. The course is intended for students interested in human health, international relations, and technical and social strategies to improve health worldwide. Students will have opportunities for in-depth discussion, presentations, and interaction with experts in the field. Because of the breadth of material to be covered, issues presented in class will be supplemented by independent student research and selected required readings.

HUMBIO 51: Big Data for Biologists - Decoding Genomic Function

Biology and medicine are becoming increasingly data-intensive fields. This course is designed to introduce students interested in human biology and related fields to methods for working with large biological datasets. There will be in-class activities analyzing real data that have revealed insights about the role of the genome and epigenome in health and disease. For example, we will explore data from large-scale gene expression and chromatin state studies. The course will provide an introduction to the relevant topics in biology and to fundamental computational skills such as editing text files, formatting and storing data, visualizing data and writing data analysis scripts. Students will become familiar with both UNIX and Python. This course is designed at the introductory level. Previous university-level courses in biology and programming experience are not required.

HUMBIO 77SI: Introduction to Performing Arts Medicine

Undergraduate musicians experience a wide range of performance injuries that are connected to repetitive motions and inadequate technique. Despite the high prevalence of playing related pain, many undergraduate musicians lack knowledge of the resources that can help them. Performing Arts Medicine (PAM) is a discipline that bridges the gap between the physiological processes that cause injuries and the art forms that lead to them. Compared to other medical specialties, performing arts medicine is new. The first symposium for PAM was held in 1983 at the Aspen Music Festival, and the PAM association was formed in 1988. Despite this novelty, PAM is becoming a larger part of the sports medicine repertoire. This course seeks to introduce undergraduate students to this blossoming field, and to encourage them to think about their own performance related pain. In the first half of the class, lecturers will include the dean of a music conservatory, an audiologist, a vocal health specialist, a mu more »

In the first half of the class, lecturers will include the dean of a music conservatory, an audiologist, a vocal health specialist, a musculoskeletal health expert, and a flautist with Ehlers Danlos syndrome. The second half of the class will invite musicians to potentially perform, and to talk about the ways that they mitigate playing related pain. The goal of this class is to encourage students to think critically about movement, medicine, and performance.

HUMBIO 88: Introduction to Statistics for the Health Sciences

Students will learn the statistical tools used to describe and analyze data in the fields of medicine and epidemiology. This very applied course will rely on current research questions and publicly available data. Students will gain proficiency with Stata to do basic analyses of health-related data, including linear and logistic regression, and will become sophisticated consumers of health-related statistical results.

HUMBIO 89: Introduction to Health Sciences Statistics

This course aims to provide a firm grounding in the foundations of probability and statistics, with a focus on analyzing data from the health sciences. Students will learn how to read, interpret, and critically evaluate the statistics in medical and biological studies. The course also prepares students to be able to analyze their own data, guiding them on how to choose the correct statistical test, avoid common statistical pitfalls, and perform basic functions in R deducer.

HUMBIO 112G: Parks and People on Islands: Lessons for Sustainability

Using island systems as a microcosm to study and discuss sustainability, the course will motivate students to think deeper about the implications of sustainability in places that are isolated, fragile and vulnerable to all anthropogenic activities. A variety of island contexts will be considered but the class will give special attention to the Galápagos Islands of Ecuador. Students will explore past and present efforts to maintain the natural and cultural resources of the Galápagos Islands in the face of rapid growth in a tourism-based economy and ever-increasing globalization. In individual or small-group course projects, students will search for tangible, realistic solutions to specific Galápagos problems in the effort to achieve balance between nature and a local human population.

HUMBIO 122E: Reducing Health Disparities and Closing the Achievement Gap through Health Integration in Schools (EDUC 429, PEDS 229)

(HUMBIO students must enroll in HUMBIO 122E. Med/Graduate students must enroll in PEDS 229.) Health and education are inextricably linked. If kids aren't healthy, they won't realize their full potential in school. This is especially true for children living in poverty. This course proposes to: 1) examine the important relationship between children's health and their ability to learn in school as a way to reduce heath disparities; 2) discuss pioneering efforts to identify and address manageable health barriers to learning by integrating health and education in school environments.

HUMBIO 122H: Social and Environmental Determinants of Health (PEDS 150, PEDS 250)

Race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status are just a few of the social determinants that contribute to health disparities. Apply a racial equity lens to drive a deeper understanding of how vulnerable populations are uniquely at risk for poorer health outcomes. Explore how where we live, work, learn, and play influences health status, and examine the processes through which social and environmental determinants adversely affect health and drive inequities across the lifespan. With experts from multiple sectors, this course will discuss innovative clinical, public health, policy, advocacy, and community engaged solutions to advance health equity. Explore the unique role of health professionals in addressing health inequities. (Cardinal Course certified by the Haas Center)
