Take A Free Health Promotion Course via Johns Hopkins School of Public Health! Sign up at Coursera. ”Community Change in Public Health” will be taught by Dr. William Brieger. Here’s an abbreviated course description:
In bringing about behavior change in public health, we often focus on the individual mother, student, or farmer. We should not forget the community structure and norms constrain for encouraging individual health behaviors. This course examines the community context of the changes needed to promote the public’s health.
I’m planning on registering and I encourage anyone interested in public health and health promotion to do the same! Thanks to my co-worker Claire for bringing this to my attention. You da bomb.
