-Describe how the meaning of “health” has varied over time and space
-Comprehend and evaluate complex arguments about politics, values, healthcare, and health in contemporary society
-Understand health and illness as grounded in personal experience, develop empathy for others’ experiences, and use creative means to reflect on those experiences
-Display sensitivity for what health means among differently positioned people
