Urban & Community Health Pathway

 

Linda Meurer, MD, MPH
Director, Urban and Community Health Pathway
 

Both population health and patient-centered care perspectives recognize the influence of lifestyle, socio-economic factors, community resources and environmental hazards on morbidity, mortality and well-being. The Urban & Community Health (UCH) Pathway links education with community needs and assets, to prepare students to effectively care for patients in urban communities, promote community health, and reduce health disparities.

 

Pathway activities address:

  •     The balance between biologic and non-biologic determinants of health
  •     Medical conditions that disproportionately affect urban, underserved populations
  •     Disparities in health, healthcare access and quality in urban settings
  •     Community-based educational strategies to promote healthy behaviors
  •     Partnership with public health and community agencies to meet health/ healthcare needs
  •     Civic-engagement and leadership skills, including the ability to advocate for patients, communities and systems changes to improve health.
