Quarter Taken: Summer 2018 Submitted Oct. 10, 2018 Grade Received: A+

TAKE THIS CLASS. It's the best. This is the class if you want a no-stress class, but you learn SOOOO much. Andrew really cared about the students that were taking his class. He brought in great guest speakers, and I learned so much in such a relatively short amount of time. I honestly didn't know what I was getting myself into when I took this class, since I don't even have a background in public health and that sort of field. But the information I learned was probably more useful than any of my major classes. I wish Andrew talked more because I'm sure he has great knowledge and experiences to share. Every week you have to submit a two-page doublespaced paper about the readings, which isn't bad at all. Andrew actually reads through them and leaves comments, but he's not judging your grammar or anything like that. He just wants to see if you actually put some thought into the readings. You can just skim and form some opinions and theories of why things came to be, and you should be fine. It's an amazing class. Don't have any hesitations. Just take it.

Quarter Taken: Summer 2017 Submitted Oct. 1, 2017 Grade Received: A

Professor Do is such a sweet, caring, knowledgable professor. He basically only teaches the first lecture, and the other lectures consist of guest speakers who discuss health issues in the general AAPI community. It was actually a bit of a bummer to only hear from him once -- he seemed to know a great deal of information regarding this topic himself.

There are readings and weekly reflection papers, but as long as you do the readings and learn something new from them, the papers are not stressful. Andrew gives amazing feedback on each paper, and lets students know that he is actually reading these papers. He even adds his thoughts to some of the ideas that you include on your papers.

Attendance and participation count. Attending class is important. Not only for the sake of your learning but also to show respect for those guest speakers who take time out of their busy schedules to speak to a group of 20 or so students (most need to wiggle their way through LA traffic to get here, so yeah, attend lecture).

The things you learn in this class culminates in your final "project," which is a group presentation. You and your group members can choose the topic as long as Andrew approves. This was actually more fun than stressful, and you get to learn a lot about the AAPI community, a group that needs more attention when it comes to health-related issues.

I would 11/10 recommend this class -- from those who just need to fulfill reqs to those who are genuinely interested. You will learn and have fun.
