VTPMD 6121 - Food Systems and Health

Fall. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Enrollment limited to: graduate and professional students; seniors with permission of instructor.

R. Nelson and MPH Staff.

This course will help students understand the complexities and interactions that make up our food system, from production to consumption, and the impact elements of the system have on health. In preparation for transdisciplinary work in the field, students will gain content knowledge in concepts, theories and methods through a series of modules, each led by Cornell University experts in partnership with international and local community partners. Students will be challenged to find connections between the themes and methods covered in the modules, and propose innovations to address a public health issue.
