NYU Buenos Aires is seeking a local part-time lecturer to teach the course, Global Issues in Social & Behavioral Health for graduate students in NYU's College of Global Public Health enrolled in the Cross-Continental MPH program for the Fall 2019 semester.
The course will run once a week for 2 hours 45 minutes for 13 weeks (9/2 - 12/5; Fall Break 10/15-10/21; Exam week of 12/9).
The lecturing role includes all preparation, delivery, and grading (some administrative assistance is available to support the preparation of course materials). Courses are to be intellectually challenging in content, and rigorous student assessment is required.
The course begins by examining social, psychological, and cultural factors that have an impact on public health in community, national, and global contexts. These factors include population characteristics, individual beliefs and behaviors, and policies that affect public health problems and their solutions. The second half of the course introduces students to methods that public health professionals use to address the social and behavioral determinants of health. These methods include theories and perspectives drawn from the social/behavioral sciences, interventions and policies designed to alleviate health disparities, and methods to evaluate interventions and disseminate the results. For further course content information, please review the sample syllabus.
