The primary goal of this course is to review and discuss aspects of health sciences research among vulnerable populations in domestic and global settings, including women, children, sexual and race/ethnic minorities, economically disadvantaged, and other populations. Health disparities, social determinants of health, cultural awareness, social responsibility, and ethical issues around specific vulnerable populations will be explored as they influence scientific research development and operations.
