A new course that explores how language, culture, race, public discourse and public policy intersect with the health and wellness of US Latinx communities. We will cover a variety of topics, but our main area of focus will be on COVID-19 and its impact on our local immigrant community and at a national level. Classes consist of discussion, active learning exercises and visits from experts.
