EPI 562 The Changing US HIV Epidemic and the Responses of Affected Communities 3.0 Credits

This course is intended as a comprehensive epidemiologic overview of the evolving US HIV epidemic over time, along with parallel responses by communities affected by AIDS and artists to express their sense of loss and strength through various media. These include written word, spoken word, and visual arts including painting, photography and film. We will follow the pandemic over time, making weekly stops along the way to observe the culture and expression of loss and resiliency by specific cultures within America and throughout the world. More importantly, the HIV epidemic, as portrayed in literature and the arts, will be dovetailed with formal social epidemiologic considerations of the spread of infection and barriers to accessing healthcare/treatment.
