HPA 494: Health Inequities

We just wanted to make sure everyone knew about this excellent class that is being offered this semester. Some of us at RPH have taken it in the past, and it was by far our favorite course. There are still a few spots left, so make space for it in your schedule and sign up! You will thank us (but you don't have to).
