PUB 230 Stress and Population Health

This course will focus on the physiological, psychological, and behavioral responses to stress and the resulting impact on health. More specifically, we will analyze research investigating the associations of factors such as acute and chronic stress, traumatic stress, with diseases of the cardiovascular system, the metabolic system, and the immune system. During this course students will develop programs and policies designed to control and facilitate positive stress management at the individual, organizational, and community levels.
