Next in the sequence after PH 101, this course provides an in-depth look at community health, one of the disciplines of public health. Students will learn and practice public health methods such as health communication, health promotion, and other program planning methods used to educate and design efforts to prevent disease, injury and improve health and wellbeing. Health programming will focus on communities, instead of individual health.
