Happy new MPH students gather in class

PHHBP 712 Health Promotion Intervention Planning

In this course, students will critically examine models and processes for the systematic planning of public health interventions in a variety of settings (e.g., medical, community). Students will gain skills in needs assessment, the identification of behavioral and environmental determinants of public health problems, and using theory to guide the selection of public health intervention strategies. Students will apply evidence-based approaches in the development of social and behavioral science interventions and become familiar with practical and ethical principles underlying public health program planning, implementation and evaluation.
