This course is focused on centering personal wellness inside and outside of the classroom. As emerging public health practitioners, we are often focused on population health. However, public health promotion and disease prevention is not only the responsibility of macro-institutions. Health is created and experienced by individuals and communities within the settings of our everyday lives—where we live, work, learn, play, pray, and love. If we are personally stressed, anxious, depressed, or fatigued, can we consider how that might impact our conceptions and pursuit of greater physical, mental, spiritual, and community health and wellness? As the adage from the 1960s Second-Wave Feminist Movement goes, ‘the personal is political.’ This course presents the creative arts as tools to promote health and to manage the effects of illness, stress, and trauma. Students will practice critical reading, critical analysis, and creative writing exercises and engage in activities to unlearn and heal oppressive attitudes and behaviors, improve mental and physical health, and promote healthy development. Concepts, such as the life course perspective, cultural humility, public health critical race praxis, intersectionality, and social capital, will be introduced side-by-side with reading and writing works of poetry, memoir, and fiction. Finally, the students will work in groups to study a health issue and produce a creative work and presentation on the topic.
