Regulating Health

SISP 263
Fall 2009
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: SOC 261
Certificates: Environmental Studies

WARNING: The government is concerned with your health. This course examines how the law has been used as a tool for promoting good health and preventing harm. We will explore questions such as: Why do governmens try to keep citizens healthy? Why do they guide some behaviors and not others? What happens when diseases breach national boundaries, and when public health is at odds with individuals' rights? We will focus on debates surrounding food, the environment, drugs, and disease, as we explore how health regulations affect our daily lives at school, work, and home.
