Description

The UConn Disability Studies in Public Health Graduate Certificate addresses disparities experienced by people living with disabilities by building the knowledge-base and competencies of participants related to health and social justice. Four interdisciplinary courses utilize tools such as critical thinking, epidemiology, policies, and interventions to prepare future professionals to advocate for and to make positive impacts on the health and quality of life for people living with disabilities.
