Students will work in theory and practice to address the question, How can we as emerging public health professionals with diverse backgrounds work together and with organizational partners to lead new initiatives and assure optimal health in our communities? This course is designed for upper level public health students who seek the leadership and consultation skills needed to assess problems, define challenges, analyze stakeholder interests, develop and implement strategies to achieve results. By the end of the course students will be able to work in teams to apply the Challenge Model to develop and implement a community-based health initiative in partnership with a community health center or organization, and effectively communicate findings and recommendations in real-world professional settings.
