Parts II & III of Three Part Series
Calling all Health Education Faculty, Administrators, Trainers, Practitioners & Health Science Librarians!
Partnerships between community colleges and four-year institutions offering health education degrees are becoming increasing prevalent throughout the country. This webinar series was launched on December 3, featuring an overview of the Community Colleges report, which was completed as part of the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) initiative “Future of Education for Public Health in the 21st Century” and in collaboration with the League for Innovation in the Community College.
Parts II & III of the webinar series will present outlines of three courses in health education that are recommended for integration into 2-year community colleges. The courses are based on the latest health education competencies and were developed by SOPHE as part of the ASPPH initiative.
