Community Health Training Module
Working in the community and with the community can be an exciting and rewarding process. We can proactively address health needs in a community setting, but this presents different challenges than working in a conventional clinical setting. This module describes steps to take to develop a community health program. Programs can range from a one-time health screening event to an ongoing educational program for community residents. No matter the size or scope of a community health project, many of the basic steps are the same.
