Towards a Digital Health Humanities Curriculum: Tools and Strategies

The development of a digital health humanities curriculum for undergraduates.

We propose to develop a curriculum that prepares students both to address the social and cultural aspects of the data-heavy medicine of the future and to be alert to the significant ethical issues it raises. To do so, we are applying to develop an innovative curriculum in the digital health humanities at Northeastern University. This planning grant will allow us to pursue three avenues to enrich and expand the footprint of the health humanities on our campus: new classes, open-access modules, and experiential education opportunities. In so doing, we will build our curriculum in directions that prepare students to address current and future issues in an increasingly digitized healthcare.
