5003.0 Public Health Perspectives on Trade & Health

Wednesday, November 7, 2007: 8:30 AM
Globalization requires that public health students become prepared to address health issues that cross international borders. Global trade policy and practices have an impact on health that future public health workers must be able to address. It is important that current public health students have opportunities to learn about and participate in research and advocacy efforts to address the impact of trade on health.
Session Objectives: 1. Describe at least three current issues in trade and health of concern to public health students. 2. Identify two ways that public health students may become involved in trade and health research and advocacy. 3. Describe how the curriculum of public health training programs can prepare students to address trade and health issues.
