RELS 231 Faith, Health and Justice


Community-integrative course that examines the complex relationships between race and social class, access to health care, religious faith, and health outcomes. Students will serve in placements that allow them to study faith-based community agencies that aim to promote health equity and to redress health disparities in Memphis. Through a combination of careful analysis of common reading assignments, presentations of papers, reflection on experiences in the site placements, and guided discussion, we aim to understand the root conditions that produce health disparities and to evaluate proposals for promoting health equity.
