Healthcare is an organic term. Throughout a person’s life span, it is inevitable to encounter the healthcare system in some way.

Concepts students will explore include defining health, health services, historical development of fee-for-service healthcare, universal healthcare and free market healthcare, the economic impact of public health demand, the demographic factors that influence urban and rural health, the social perspective and impact of community health, and healthcare delivery in traditional and non-traditional settings.
