Perspect on Gndr/Disease (W)

Fall 2018

Description

Course Description: 

This course explores the physiological mechanisms of disease and resistance, social definitions of disease, and gender-related factors in research, diagnosis, treatment, and adaptation to disease. Diseases are usually studied and described in generic terms without regard to gender; however, it is apparent that substantial differences exist in male and female susceptibility, manifestations, and responses to many diseases; just as significantly, society’s responses to disease are clearly influenced by gender issues. These issues are explored, through the perspectives of both natural and social sciences.
