Join us to learn more about Community Health and how it is related to Health Promotion.

Public and Community Health is a large and continuously evolving field that works with the communities to manage or prevent disease and promote wellness. Community health education programs can occur in a variety of settings, from schools, to recreation centers, to homeless shelters, to churches or even at local markets. During this webinar, you will get a better understanding of what community health is, how health education programs can be set up in the community, and how you can use a degree in community health. 

If you are interested in Public Health, Health Education, Community Health, or Health Promotion, please join us to get all of your questions answered. We will also briefly touch on the Masters of Science in Health Promotion MUIH offers with a concentration in Community Health or Worksite Wellness.
