This course examines the intersection of environmental justice and public health through an interdisciplinary approach that considers social sciences, art, and the critical role of community organizing. Our examination of the intimate relationship between environmental justice and public health centers the scholarship and lived experiences of communities – both local and global – most impacted by environmental injustices and health disparities.
