I had a great experience in Professor Torres's course. From the beginning of the course it was evident that Professor Torres really cares about all of his students. He took the time to get to know each one of us on an individual basis. I feel that this level of commitment is something that comes from being a Midd alum and someone who is truly invested in our future once we leave Midd. As for the course itself, I learned a great deal. The material that Professor Torres taught comes from the many years he spent practicing what he now preaches. Learning from someone with such deep experiences was not only very fascinating but also very inspiring. The course format was also well thought out and manageable and we often had very interesting class discussions facilitated by him which was cool. The skills I learned in class will definitely help me in my career, more so, if I ever wish to participate in non-profit work, I now have a stable background to do that which I feel is very rewarding. Definitely take this class if you are interested in global health, entrepreneurship, or even consulting!

Sam Byrne is great and this class is fascinating. We went over many case studies that introduced the field of planetary health and the PHE approach (population, health, and environment). We also learned some general frameworks and value systems that are used to set laws and regulations around environmental protection. This is a very discussion-based class, but the material is interesting and easy to talk about. The final project was to research a disease and give a presentation and final paper on a research question of your choosing regarding the disease. My only fault is Prof. Byrne can be slow to grade things but he's an extremely fair grader so it didn't matter that much to me.

GHLT0257 with David Torres25 days ago

This has to be one of my least favorite class at Midd so far. Professor Torres is very bad at lecturing… He basically liked leaving questions for students to discuss… You can even do the final projects without going to class. NOT RECOMMEND. I took this class just for the CW credit….
