This course explores the ways in which political, social, and economic institutions and practices influence the history of disease, its understanding, and its control within the context of public health in the United Kingdom. We will examine the historical foundations of public health and epidemiology, visiting important locations such as the John Snow’s Broad Street pump, the Florence Nightingale Museum, Parliament, and several additional significant places. We will explore the differences and similarities in public health across three different cities in Great Britain – London, Cambridge and Oxford.  We will compare and contrast United States health care system with Britain’s National Health Service.
