Students who complete Health 300 initiate science-based health projects while further developing mentoring skills. Projects are selected by faculty from proposals submitted in prior semester. Project teams may include students who successfully complete Health 100 with faculty guidance.

This course is designed to promote the science of health by expanding individual knowledge in a chosen topic area and by the creation of translational health community projects on Emory’s campus. Students will work alone or in groups of two to three under the direct supervision of the course instructor and Emory and Emory affiliated Human Health faculty. This course is designed to be a valuable addition to an undergraduate with interests in human health, with aim of a broader intellectual development and community impact. The class format will include foundational readings and critical discussion led by Human Health faculty in an informal, discussion–type setting. Although many readings will require some scientific knowledge, all are chosen to appeal to non-specialist readers. To encourage active engagement with course material, students will be required to complete short written critique assignments related to the assigned readings. Class time spent following foundational reading and discussion work will be devoted to the development and execution of community translational health group projects. Possible project ideas will be inspired from the pillars of health; physical, mental, social, spiritual and emotional.
