Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health

The course will cover existing and emerging problems related to nutrition and global health. We will review the epidemiological, biological, behavioral, and social causes and consequences of malnutrition, with emphasis on infectious disease and maternal and child health outcomes.

Provides an introduction to ecological and epidemiological concepts basic to the control of infectious agents. Considers important parasitic diseases of particular significance in the developing areas of the world.

The nutritional health of the public begins with food.

The built environment – our homes, schools, businesses, streets and sidewalks, and transportation options – and the natural environment – features such as vegetation, water, parks, and open spaces – directly and indirectly impact health and well-being.
