CHSM 5005 Public Health in Action ()


Credits: 3 credits

Course Description:

This course is intended to apply concepts learned in earlier core courses, specifically BSHM 5001 (Behavioral/Social Factors in Public Health) and HPM 5001 (Health Care in the US). It provides an opportunity for students to see how public health issues and concerns can be translated into policies (potentially affecting a broad range of the population) and interventions targeted to communities, smaller groups and individuals. It also provides skills in leadership and appropriate communication of public health content for different audiences. During the course, there will be multiple opportunities to practice the concepts and skills covered in this course.
