Public Health Learning Modules

The goal of the learning modules is to understand Healthy People 2020 and the various ways in which to use policy and program interventions to advance the goals and objectives of the initiative. While the modules touch on 17 different topic areas, the lessons learned can be translated to other areas addressed in Healthy People 2020.

The Public Health Learning 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 learners.
