“DISEASE DETECTIVES: AN INTRODUCTION TO GLOBAL HEALTH”
Course Description: This course is ideal for students interested in health and global issues who want to make a positive change in the world. It will appeal to high school students who plan to have careers in health-related fields, as global health combines medicine, public health, international relations, economics, and other disciplines to save lives worldwide. In this four-week online self-paced course, we will pay particular attention to one critical aspect of global health: detecting, controlling and preventing outbreaks of infectious disease. Students will have the opportunity to participate in this course through a major U.S.-based university. While no course grades or credit will be given, a certificate of participation from USC will be available upon successful course completion.
