Global health and food matters are best understood within their biological, ecological, and socio-economic contexts. This course explores how processes in these contexts contribute to health and disease, especially as they pertain to international and community development. Food will be utilized as an organizing theme with which to inspect the intimacy of relationships between environmental and human health in both local and global contexts. Globalization presents opportunities and challenges for health and food security and for ecosystem integrity. Development models that enhance these by strengthening human-environment interconnectedness, using responsible technologies, and developing just policies are upheld as exemplars
