Equity, Culture, and Preventive Health

Equity, Culture, and Preventive Health

This local case study looks at health equity and social determinants of health regarding identity and community positionality in preventing diabetes. This praxis lab holistically connects and reviews concepts from nutrition, geography, urban planning, health, kinesiology, and social work in exploring access and assets that influence diabetes prevention and diagnosis. We will explore questions such as: How can community and cultural assets
disrupt systemic health inequity? How do health promotion and disease prevention situate themselves in both systems and selves? How do coexisting discourses on culture and health influence approaches to preventive health?
