HLTH 8200 - Organizing Community Action for Health Promotion and Education


(5 cr.) There are many task forces, coalitions, and consortiums in place to promote health and prevent disease. But groups such as these require individuals who know how to effectively organize and lead community-based efforts. Students in this course explore the skills and methods leaders use to organize communities, interagency collaborative efforts, and work sites for collective action regarding health promotion and education. Students analyze risk factors at the community, work-site, local, state, national, and international levels. Using qualitative and quantitative methods, students assess the needs and capacities of communities for health-related initiatives. They also synthesize course content to evaluate an existing collaborative community organization strategy and propose new methods and processes for team building in community health programs. (Prerequisite(s): Foundational and core curricula.)
