It is my goal to create a classroom environment that is a site of knowledge production and critical awareness where students are empowered to ask questions, embrace conflict and critically analyze complex issues. Through interactive learning and collaboration, I scaffold this process, providing students with the tools, space and support to ask critical questions about how our society is structured, to question closely-held beliefs and to consider alternate explanations for health inequity in our society.
I have taught and/or currently teach the following courses:
Structural Racism and Health Inequities (Spring 2019, 2020)
Axes of Inequity: Exploring the Root Causes of Health Disparities Through Social Policy (Summer 2017, 2018)
Foundations of Public Health (Fall 2015)
Principles of Health Policy (Spring 2014)
