Health and Society Student Association

What is Health and Society?

Health & Society is an interdisciplinary program at York University that goes beyond biological views of health to examine its social, cultural and political dimensions. We study poverty, racial, sexual, and gender discrimination, globalization, neo-liberalism, environment, community support, social cohesion, occupational stress, home care, malnutrition, political economy – in other words anything and everything that affects health.

Organization Mission Statement

Our Mission is to provide HESO Students and the broader York community with a better awareness about the ever-expanding field of health. HESO encourages opportunities for fellowship across related and non-related fields. We aim to provide a safe space for all students to deepen their post-secondary experience by providing resources and opportunities relevant to their chosen degree.
