About this Unit
This unit builds on first year core units in order to further explore the factors that influence the health of both the environment and the community. The major determinants of environmental and community health are addressed along with important interactions between health and the environment. Students will work in small groups in order to investigate the effects of urban development on the health of the community and the environment. The unit includes an introduction to the principles of primary health care and ecological public health. Emphasis will be given to the ongoing development of problem solving and independent learning skills, and to increasing students understanding of contemporary environmental issues and the inextricable links between the health of the community and the health of the environment.
