611.23 Readings: Health Inequalities in the U.S. : Before, During, and After COVID

Despite spending more per capita on healthcare than any other nation, the United States exhibits more health inequality—across class, race, and geography—than any other industrialized country.  The Covid pandemic has exacerbated many of these structural inequalities. This course will examine sources of structural inequality that are associated with propagating health disparities, inspect how these inequalities have shaped the Covid pandemic, and explore potential reforms that might mitigate inequality in a post-Covid world.

This Readings section counts as a PIPS elective.
