Medical standards and procedures have been sharply influenced by the past - shaped by social context and a great deal of trial and error. A new course, GWS 309: Health, History, & Human Diversity, will focus on how health care and the medical field has been shaped around social constructions of gender, race, and diversity throughout its history, continuing to play a role in contemporary medicine. In this podcast, Melissa Stein, an assistant professor in the Gender & Women’s Studies Department, discusses the aims, content, and importance of GWS 309 and how it can impact future patients and practitioners of medicine.
