4063.0 Teaching Critical History of Public Health and Health Policy: Progressive Pedagogy in Action

Tuesday, October 28, 2008: 8:30 AM
Building on the discussion at our APHA 2007 session, we are seeking submissions that describe strategies for engaging learners in the histories of diverse aspects of public health and societal determinants of health, so that they can better understand how we got to where we are now, what the struggles and victories and setbacks have been, and what the options are for engaging in a more historically conscious and grounded way in the issues confronting us now. Continuing with our focus from 2007, we are interested in receiving submissions that are about teaching the critical history of public health in a broad range of settings including schools of public health and medicine, worksites, K-12 schools, legislatures, communities, undergraduate education, and professional schools other than public health/medicine, including law, social work, journalism, and policy. For this session we are issuing an open call for abstracts: presentations for this session will be selected from abstracts submitted in response this “call for abstracts.” This session will be in the American Public Health Association 136th Annual Meeting in San Diego, CA on Tuesday, October 28 in the 8:30 to 10:00 am APHA time slot.
Session Objectives: Participants will be able to describe the approaches taken in different courses to teach about the social history of public health.
