Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course was amazing! When something major happened (i.e. gun violence, police brutality, terrorism, etc) in the world, Sophie would take the time to discuss those topics and relate it not only to Public Health, but also make us think about how it relates to our lives. We learned about how developing nations are not the only face of hunger and that it lives right in our backyard in the US. She made us think past the superficial of topics and really understand what Public Health's place is in the world.
The highlight of this course for me was Sophie explaining how race has dramatically affected the lives of Americans and how events that have taken place hundreds of years ago still continue to permeate negatively into the lives of people today. I loved that she taught that because we often like to think in a vacuum and that is not how life actually and to really tackle some of the health issues that minority groups face today, we must know how it got to this point.

Advice for students:
I would say be an active listener and participant. Sophie values the thoughts of her students even if they diverged from one another because Public Health is not one-dimensional.
