Four new educational modules based on Health People 2020 goals and objectives are now available for free to educators and students at www.aptrweb.org/learningmodules. APTR, Temple University and the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) launched the Public Health Learning Modules in 2013 to provide innovative teaching materials that are easily-accessible and easily integrated into existing curricula. The 18 Modules can be used individually to supplement an existing course or combined to create a stand-alone course for the education of undergraduate, graduate and/or professional students. Each module includes PowerPoint slides, video lectures, in-class activities, student assessments, and an instructor’s guide. Several modules include case studies to demonstrate practical use and associated challenges of implementing health policy to accomplish Healthy People 2020 goals.
The new Modules are:
7 - Mental Health: Children and Adolescents
15 - Oral Health Across the Lifespan
16 - Public Health Infrastructure in the United States: An Integrated System
