gharris (Wed, 17 Aug 2016 20:09:23 GMT): Rollback: Please clarify prerequisites. This course says it is a continuation of 6118; should 6118 be a prereq? If so, that's in conflict with the syllabus, which says prereqs are "PA 6210 Health Justice and Society I for MSHS students and PUBH 600 [sic] Social and Behavioral Approaches to Public Health for joint degree physician assistant students."
