HUMBIO 9: Public Service Internship Preparation (EARTHSYS 9, EDUC 9, PUBLPOL 74, URBANST 101)

Are you prepared for your internship this summer? This workshop series will help you make the most of your internship experience by setting learning goals in advance; negotiating and communicating clear roles and expectations; preparing for a professional role in a non-profit, government, or community setting; and reflecting with successful interns and community partners on how to prepare sufficiently ahead of time. You will read, discuss, and hear from guest speakers, as well as develop a learning plan specific to your summer or academic year internship placement. This course is primarily designed for students who have already identified an internship for summer or a later quarter. You are welcome to attend any and all workshops, but must attend the entire series and do the assignments for 1 unit of credit.

HUMBIO 11: Meet HumBio: a lecture series introducing HumBio themes

A lecture and discussion series designed for freshmen who want to learn more about Human Biology - either the major itself or the topics within its realm - by hearing from some of HumBio's most engaging faculty. Most weeks the class will feature a faculty member addressing three central questions: What do I do? Why is it important? and What professional opportunities are possible for a person concentrating in my field? Some sessions will focus on navigating research and educational opportunities at Stanford. The course is not meant to cover a specific body of content, therefore the assignments for the class aim to build fundamental skills: taking useful notes, articulating questions or ideas prompted by presentations, visiting office hours, connecting lecture topics with current events or journal articles, paying full courteous attention to speakers and peers, reflecting on potential majors, and creating a study guide. There will be no required readings or exams.

HUMBIO 11SI: Wellness Kit for Stanford and Beyond

Many students are familiar with the idea of ¿Duck Syndrome¿ at Stanford and that many students experience stress on a daily basis. This class develops an understanding of what stress is, its impact on our health, how it manifests in our lives, and how to address it while cultivating holistic wellness. In order to regulate the impacts of stress and promote overall wellness, this class integrates a well-rounded approach to developing a ¿wellness kit¿ that includes various forms of meditation, mindful eating, understanding nutrition, and understanding exercise. In addition, the class offers students the opportunity to practice discussing health topics in the media and biases in health-related articles. Finally, this class seeks to support students in imagining how to integrate this ¿wellness kit¿ into their lives beyond Stanford and bring wellness along with them.

HUMBIO 14: Understanding Connections between Food and the Environment

Globally, food systems, what we eat, where and how we grow it, play a major role in determining our impact on the environment. By considering our food choices, we can find "low hanging vegetables" for reducing our "foodprint". In this course, we will begin to explore the complex connections between food and the environment. We will begin with a discussion of "Planetary Boundaries" as a guide for understanding the limits for human alterations of the biosphere, beyond which abrupt changes could occur. We will then introduce nine topics which will be discussed in the nine weeks to follow, and how they relate to food.

HUMBIO 29G: Gender and Intersectionality in Global Health

Intersectional thinking is increasingly being applied to global health and other academic disciplines as a framework for understanding complex, and often seemingly intractable, challenges to health and well-being. This course explores how gender (e.g. male, female, trans*, non-binary, etc) identity and relationships intersect with other social categorizations, including age and reproductive status (particularly for women), race/ethnicity, socioeconomic class, immigration status, educational attainment, to create systemic advantages or disadvantages that may explain and/or could address poor health outcomes within and across global communities. More specifically, we will focus on intersectional and biological frameworks in the context of cultural gender norms, to explore possible reasons for differences in incidence and prevalence of a wide range of health disparities worldwide. We will also use these frameworks to explore options for health improvement, in terms of both prevention and care/treatment.
