The Intersectionality of Disability, American Indians and Rurality: Part 1
This online course is designed to teach students about the intersections between disability, race, and place. Public health topics relevant to American Indians with disability who reside on American Indian reservations will be presented.
An intersectionality approach will be applied to provide the following objectives:
- Increase awareness of contextual factors or “place” impacts reservation communities
- Introduce culturally-relevant and community-adapted methods and tools
- Incorporate definitions and applications of multiculturalism, social justice and advocacy
- Examine the concept of health equity by briefly introducing monitoring and surveillance efforts specific to American Indians, people with disability and American Indians with disability to observe health disparities.
The course would be relevant to people seeking to work with American Indian populations in a public health, social work, research, or mental health setting.
