L. Francis, G. Meredith
Via this seminar, students will gain an understanding of the elements of needs‐ and evidence‐based public health program and/or response planning, and will design a public health project/response to address a defined need related to prevention, treatment, and/or care. This course will cover the core elements of program planning, including concept mapping, logic models, work plans, Gantt charts, and basic budgets and staffing plans. This will be practiced via in-depth discussion of real‐life cases, and by self‐directed research, planning, grant writing, and peer review.
