• 1:00 pm Eastern Time (New York Time)

Are you curious why COVID-19 has taken over the world? Do you wonder why certain countries have better health outcomes than others? This course will introduce you to the fundamental concepts of population health and help explain the biological/medical and social effects across the world. We’ll cover topics ranging from stress hormones to social networks, which you’ll learn in highly interactive activities.
