I took this course when Kim-Farley first taught it and has such an awesome time. This man is a global health legend, having worked as the immunization director for the WHO. He is very easy to talk to and started lecture by sharing his personal experiences as a global health professional. I wish I got to know him better when I took the class. If you have him, go to his office hours and take the time to learn about this man's insanely impressive career. He truly has left his mark on the world.
Dr. Kim-Farley is one of the most approachable professors I have had at UCLA thus far! PH 150 really changes the way you look at healthcare and prevention locally and globally. His course consists of a paper, a midterm, a final and iclicker questions. His exams are very doable. I would not say it is a very easy A. You still need to study slides and pay attention in lecture to do well. He really wants students to be happy and successful as college students. Every class, he shares his experiences in the field of public health for a few minutes. The guest speakers are very knowledgeable as well. Overall, I highly recommend this course not only because of the wide scope of topics you learn about but also because of the high quality lecturer that Dr. Kim-Farley is.
One of the easiest science upper div's I have taken here at UCLA. Would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a grade boost. Basically, the whole class comes down to 1 midterm, 1 final, clicker questions, and an opinion editorial essay. Did not do a single reading at all. The class is structured such that every lecture, there is a guest lecturer talking about a public health topic (such as sleepiness, food health, epidemiology, etc.). All you have to do is show up to class, click for the clicker questions and record the answer for the clicker questions. Some of the clicker questions are utilized on the midterm/final. In order to do well on the exams, do the disucssion questions posted on CCLE that revolve around the lectures (most of the answer can be found on the powerpoint), review the powerpoints 2x, and memorize the clicker. This class is incredible doable, but probably the most boring class I have taken here at UCLA.
