MPH/CEE241 Biology of Water and Health, Fall 2007
This interdepartmental course explores the multi-faceted ways in which water and human health are related. This includes the influence of waterborne pathogens on human and environmental health, as well as by identifying the central role of water in preserving health through adequate sanitation and hygiene. Above and beyond this classic lens for examining water and health, the course explores social, economic, and behavioral dimensions in a global context. The course allows participants to become familiar with different disciplinary approaches for addressing the biological linkages between water and health.
