This course seems very very dated, as it was clearly made in 2017 (at least 4 of the 5 modules). If ever there had been a time to update the course it would have been during the pandemic as health inequities have been glaring. The social media stuff was already dated. It seemed very ironic, in the last module, when one of the lecturers talked about how paper journals were a thing of the past, because information is immediately out-of-date. I laughed out loud at that. I was disappointed by this missed opportunity that this course might have been given the current exceptionally relevant time and think that it should be more transparent, upfront, when courses are old like this.

This course was a great foundation. I do some health equity research, but I found that the videos and readings were helpful to deepen my understanding of health equity overall. There were also many programmatic methods shared that I will be utilizing to implement future projects. Thank You!

The course is great! Community engagement professionals and volunteers will learn a couple of things about the impact of their engagement methods from a rigorous point of view. I would like to see more updated information that extends beyond medicine practitioners though, there has been a lot on this in the last 3 years.

I found this course very useful in terms of expanding my knowledge base of health equity and its relationship with research. Covid and other natural disasters (Hurricane Katrina) have shown us that have shown us that 15 years has done little to disparage any of the inequities that exist at all levels of almost every large institution the US, the healthcare system being just one. I now have an idea of the many inequities in healthcare and healthcare minorities face and faced and why minorities can be very apprehensive when medical research is involved. As a public health professional having my base knowledge put into context and with some perspective added can be invaluable. Take the course, You'll be a better scientist or student. Five Stars.

The foundations of Health Equity was a very good course, it did have a lot of readings, but it was very useful list of readings. I would certainly recommend this course, it does not matter whether you are a clinician, community developer or a policy makers it seems to be relevant to all. I would have liked to see a little more interaction in the forum, and also get to know each other. Another area is during this course, is there a way to reach a facilitator. Thank you to all the people who facilitated this session and ofcourse Lisa. Wow, what a powerhouse of knowledge, and thanks to coursera for giving us easy access to such valuable courses.

This is a great course! It offers a lot of important information on health equity research - offering real-world examples of challenges and solutions, particularly around stakeholder engagement - in a relatively condensed, easy-to-follow format. The only thing I'd note for future students is that a few of the videos are significantly longer than the estimated timeframe (for example, a video labeled as "15 minutes" might actually be an hour). But the insights are valuable, and it is more than worth the extra time investment! :)

This course provides a compelling overview of both the issues surrounding and academic-community research pursuits regarding health equity. With the on-going COVID-19 pandemic extensively highlighting severe medical, public health and social inequities in, perhaps, all nations, this topics in this course and the field it represents are poised to become the "next big thing" in improving health systems around the world.

I really learned a lot from this course that I can apply to my work . It was well worth taking and I recommend to others invovled in healthcare and healthcare research. It would be great to add some updated information since the pandemic onset if/when possible, but overall it's still a great and valuable course to take.

Loved this program! It was a great overview with knowledgeable professors and speakers and manageable to complete while also working full time. Nice mix of videos, reviewing journal articles and discussion opportunities. Would highly recommend this to those interested in HER - Health Equity Research.

Excellent. Great resources. My only comment would be great to have references to work with other groups affected by disproportionate access to health services e.g indigneous communities although I appreciate that the presenters work is with their local communities

Até o momento desconhecia o que poderia ser equidade em saúde públicas, a fundação mostra o rico quadro de cientístas de diferentes disciplinas, métodos e intervenções para tentar promover a igualdade na saúde e para o grupo em risco social.
