It is no secret that health care in the United States is in crisis. President Obama has pledged to work with the nation to rehabilitate our health care system. In this course, we will examine how fiction and non-fiction writers challenge such systems to rethink the notion of health as well as the politics of sickness. The writers we will study take on issues like access to health care, models of illness and healing, medicine and social justice, and others. In this online course, readings, podcasts, wikis, and discussion board posts will help us explore the responsibilities of medicine as well as those of the community in which medicine is practiced, for a socially just and comprehensive understanding of illness, health and healing in the United States.
