Summer 2017 - 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.
