Public Health 150AC is a core undergraduate course for the Public Health major and is designed to provide a survey of the major social, cultural, and bio-behavioral patterns of health and health behavior among individuals, families, neighborhoods and communities. The course pays particular attention to four census tracts in the Bay Area which serve as the foundation for course assignments, including the use of U.S. census data, cancer statistics, and street level data such as Google street view.  This course is also now part of the American Cultures Engaged Scholarship (ACES) program which has provided critical support for strengthening community partnerships  and enhancing health and enhancing both public health training at UC and health and social services in the community.
