HSPH faculty teaching more undergraduate global health courses as demand grows

In response to growing undergraduate interest in global health, Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) faculty are teaching more courses for undergraduates, establishing a unique relationship with the Faculty of Arts and Sciences.

Christopher Duggan, associate professor in the Department of Nutrition, is teaching a course about nutrition and public health. “We felt there was an unmet need and certainly a high interest among the undergraduate students to learn about the concepts of nutrition and how that relates to global health,” he said in a May 24, 2012 Harvard Crimson article.

[[Barry R. Bloom]], professor of public health, former HSPH dean, and co-instructor of a course on global health threats, said, “With the tremendous interest on the part of undergraduates, particularly in global health, we take that as a mission and obligation.”
