idk if I'm being unreasonable, but our social determinants of health teaching is often not much more than "if you're less privileged, you have poorer health"

because that's fairly obvious and your students know THAT

what I want to know is how to CHANGE that

also what do people think about front-loading stats about these issues? do you find it helps? does it confirm what you already know?


@noctiluca Teaching this stuff in California, very few of the students were already familiar with this stuff, but from what I recall, most weren't pre-med. The stats seemed to help them look at things differently, outside their own bubbles.
