EEB 158 Bastani’s Health Disparities Lecture HOMEWORK DIRECTIONS: * Download the document in this week's folder: "Bastani take away points" Step 1: In Column 1, highlight the most important terms/ideas. Step 2: In Column 2, synthesize the highlighted information into key messages. Step 3: In Column 3, see if you can come up with questions to promote big picture thinking. Step 4: When you’re finished, print out your document and bring it to class this Wednesday In class this Wednesday, as a group, we will create simple teaching materials about health disparities, targeted to undergraduates. OPTIONAL: If you’re feeling up to it, you can try to create very simple images (using simple shapes like boxes, arrows, stick figures, + text) to capture big ideas. If you can’t do graphics, you can draw it on paper and bring the paper to class. Alternatively, you can refer to images (note the slide #) from Dr. Bastani’s lecture slides (found in BOX). Below, I’ve created examples for the first 2-3 minutes of the transcription. Continue on your own after the last section you see highlighted.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
