PUBH 8220 - Health Promotion and Education Interventions in Diverse Populations♦


(5 cr.) Through this course, students explore the planning and organization of health promotion programs for underserved, economically disadvantaged, and underrepresented populations. Students learn to design health promotion programs that consider the social, economic, and medical conditions influencing the health status of diverse populations. Throughout the course, students develop a health promotion project for a specific population, based on the intervention mapping process. Through this project, students analyze and integrate principles of social change and empowerment, summarize research that supports the decision-making process, and critique institutional and social systems. Students also have the opportunity to assess and discuss the future of health promotion, considering projections of needs over the next two decades. (Prerequisite(s): Foundational and core curricula.)
