Our Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Community Health program explores and recognizes the wide range of social, biological and institutional factors that influence the health and well-being of communities defined by geography, socioeconomic status, gender, cultural makeup, ability and vulnerability. In this program you'll learn to: Identify the most significant health challenges in communities. Evaluate the factors that create health risks for members of those communities. Study and make recommendations for program and policy interventions that will improve the health status within your communities of concern. Consideration is also given to the Canadian and Ontario health-care systems, and the policy framework that underpins the provision of health and social services to specific communities and the broader population.
