Discussion Questions How has the past women’s movement served to perpetuate the status quo of policies addressing health disparities? To what extent, if any, are women’s interest groups playing a central role in deciding which values will be promoted and enforced by the U.S. government? How far do you think the leadership program can go with making significant changes to the state's minority health status? What additional means need to be used in mobilizing the sections of society tha most need them.

    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.
