- About Us
Co-sponsored by the UW Global Center for Integrated Health of Women, Adolescents and Children (Global WACh) and the School of Law, this new collaborative series combines panel discussions and interactive case analysis to determine ways in which law, policy, and social determinants intersect to affect the health of women, children, and adolescents. This course is open to the public as well as students of the University of Washington. Graduate students will have the option to earn 1 credit.
The course will utilize a case/problem-based discussion to define ways in which law and policy intersect to create health inequities for WACh, and to identify potential mechanisms of change to improve WACh health. Each hour long, weekly session will involve a brief keynote presentation to define the problem, followed by panel comments from 3-4 speakers representing the perspectives of health, law, government/policy, and community, and will end with a 30 minute facilitated discussion. The course will utilize comparative examples of both global and domestic issues. Each session will be followed by an informal reception to encourage networking and the development of novel collaborations between graduate students, faculty, and panelists.
