Abstract: ...this course will require you to participate in a multi-faceted community health study of a neighborhood located one mile northwest of the Rhodes Campus. This area is known as the Hollywood/Springdale area, and its health statistics are similar to those found in “third world” countries. Why is health so poor in this community? How does the urban environment contribute to these poor health outcomes? What can be done to improve the health of people living in this area? These are the orienting questions of this course. If you are not motivated to study these questions in earnest you should not be in this course. If you are not willing to spend time working and conducting fieldwork in a depressed urban area than you should not be in this course. If you want to help diagnose community health problems and contribute to the development of strategies for overcoming such problems you are in the right course.
