Learning for Our Common Health: How an Academic Focus on HIV/AIDS Will Improve Education and Health. Program for Health and Higher Education.
Burns, W. David, Ed.
This monograph presents eight essays that reflect lessons learned and insights gained from a project of the Association of American Colleges and Universities Program for Health and Higher Education (PHHE) to help leaders improve undergraduate learning by engaging higher education in the solution to preventing human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and reducing their threat to youth. The papers include a Foreword written by Carol Geary Schneider, followed by: "Learning for Our Common Health" (Wm. David Burns); "If We Fail To Lead" (Patsy B. Reed); "HIV, Health, and Liberal Education" (William J. Cronon); "HIV/AIDS in the Academy: Engagement and Learning in a Context of Change" (Richard P. Keeling); "Service Learning and HIV/AIDS Prevention: Prospects for an Integrated Strategy" (Ira Harkavy and Daniel Romer); "Learning about HIV/AIDS and Ethics in a Liberal Democracy" (Nora Kizer Bell); "Placing HIV/AIDS in Perspective: A Question of History" (Robert E. Fullilove and Mindy Thompson Fullilove); and "HIV/AIDS and Institutional Transformation: The Experience of San Francisco State University" (Robert A. Corrigan and Sheila A. McClear). A resource section is appended. (Contains 42 references.) (SM)
