Harvard School of Public Health Program Evaluation Course

Important Notice: This document is provided only as a historical reference for the public health community.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC's) Healthy Homes and Lead Poisoning Prevention Program, with the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH), offers a 2-week training course called Program Evaluation: The Case of Lead Poisoning Prevention Programs.

In this course, teams of state and local public health department personnel, HSPH graduate students, and CDC staff collaboratively develop an evaluation framework for their specific projects. The course builds program evaluation capacity with existing programs so that programs do not need to hire outside consultants. The course also trains HSPH students to incorporate evaluation into their careers after graduation. The collaborative teams develop a logic model, related indicators, and an evaluation plan; state and local public health programs then implement the evaluation plans.

This yearly course has been so well received that the branch reaches out to other CDC-supported programs and federal agencies to participate.
