PRCs bridge academic study and practical, community application of information on health promotion and disease prevention. As a result, they are uniquely positioned as a resource for public health training.
This catalog lists training programs offered or sponsored by the centers and some of their affiliates. The courses are organized in three broad categories:
- public health practitioners
- public health advocates (includes community health workers, teachers, and members of community-based organizations)
- students (includes graduate and undergraduate level).
Courses that may appeal to multiple audiences are cross-referenced.
The training covers a wide range of topics, and the courses or programs vary in length—from a few hours to several days to weekly sessions. The program formats differ as well; some are Web-based while others are conducted in person, often emphasizing small-group activities.
