HLTH 605: Community Project
In this course, students enhance their understanding of the roles and responsibilities of public health professionals and increase their competence as community health educators. Community project sites are carefully selected to provide experiences that reflect the mission of the Public Health Community Health education program and meet the individual learning and career needs of students while responding to real public health issues in the community. Students are linked with community groups that are either planning, want to plan, or have an identified need for a community health education activity and may be involved in a variety of projects, inclulding performing community health assessments, producing health education materials, and serving as health educators. Students must complete all of the core and required courses proior to participating in the community project.
