GLID 501 - Perspectives in Infect. Dis. I
This course is arranged across three modules, each of which will highlight science, policy, data, and other interdisciplinary elements needed to help control the infectious disease problem. The topics of the modules rotate annually but include diseases like HIV, malaria, neglected tropical diseases, antimicrobial resistance, rabies, and Covid-19; some modules will not be disease-specific but will be structured to address prominent problems in or approaches to global health, such as global health governance. Fall 2022 modules are tentatively on HIV, Ebola, and neglected tropical diseases. Modules will be taught by faculty with expertise in the various topics, and guest lecturers from the United States and abroad may participate to complement this expertise and provide external perspective. The course emphasizes development of strong written and verbal skills. Registration requires instructor approval for non-GLID students; while there are no pre-requisites, we recommend the course for students who have taken college-level biology or microbiology courses; experience with political science and/or economics classes also supports success.
