In this seminar, participants will submerge themselves in the expanding field of global health with public oral health serving as a thematic thread during the program. As a field that mixes public health, medicine, and dentistry, public oral health will serve as an introduction to explore how access to care and social inequities contribute to poor oral health and result in non-communicable diseases later in life.
Set in verdant Costa Rica, this program will help students comprehend complex topics such as climate change, emerging infectious diseases, natural and manmade disasters, air quality, and food security. It also seeks to broaden understandings of how human disruption of the earth's natural systems are impacting the global disease burden, so that students can discuss and find solutions that integrate the wellbeing of our biosphere to ours.
