CHP 519 Methodology and Methods for Health Equity Research: The Health of Black Communities 3.0 Credits
This course teaches students how to leverage theories of structural marginalization to inform methodological approaches to and design of health equity research and practice. Focusing on health inequities in the Black community as a case study, the course first discusses the state of evidence with a lens towards challenges in successful translation into action. Next, we distinguish between methodology and methods in order to focus on the use of two frameworks of structural marginalization used to generate this evidence base: critical race theory and structural racism. The course concludes by having students apply their understanding of theory and foundational frameworks to critique current methodological approaches to addressing a select Black Health issue.
