The majority of common life phenomena and processes closely connected to health. The core objective of our course is to offer students a special overview of health in a selected variety of social contexts and perspectives. We will examine how social, cultural, religious, economic and other forces, impacts and requirements influence health. Our course readings and discussions will help us reveal some hidden aspects of health-related actions or highlight some health aspects of everyday life. This course is built around lectures, including guest lecture, class discussion, and debates.
