Course Spotlight

SWK399: Women's Health Policy

Minor in women, gender and sexuality studies

This course explores policies that provide a foundation and promote or mitigate against the health and well-being of women across the lifespan. Students critically examine seminal legislation such as Title V, Title IX and the Violence Against Women and Affordable Care acts and discuss topics pertinent to women, including reproductive health, family leave and culturally appropriate health care practices.

Taught by Dr. Mary Montminy-Danna, associate professor in the Department of Social Work, the course also examines the ways in which gender impacts programming. Consideration is given to access to care and the impacts on the social, emotional, physical, spiritual and economic aspects of health. Through experiential learning, students develop skills and strategies for improving policies and outcomes for women.

During the fall 2016 semester, the course will meet in the classroom from 2:30-3:45 p.m. Mondays and online from 2:30-3:45 p.m. Wednesdays.
