Description

This is a critical time in the 21st century of public health. The Army and our Nation are battling with numerous health and readiness threats of obesity, infectious disease, substance abuse, suicide, housing concerns, domestic violence, extremism, and more. To meet these challenges head-on and embody the Army’s People First Strategy, as public health professionals we need to be leaders and strategists for the communities we serve. The last year has shown us that public health is a team sport and we are all critical players. We must be able to engage with people, partners, and communities to drive change by developing effective prevention strategies that improve the health of people, environments, workspaces, and places.

This workshop will provide strategies and tools for public health professionals in all disciplines to effectively plan, coordinate, implement, and evaluate prevention activities applicable to all echelons. Participants will build foundational skills in coalition-building, community health assessment, survey development and administration, program planning, and evaluation. Attendance at this workshop will enable you to be a more powerful member of the public health team to ensure conditions in which everyone can be healthy and mission-ready.
