COVID-19 and You
Parkinson’s 2021 Summer Session Courses
The Parkinson School of Health Sciences and Public Health invites degree and non-degree seeking students to participate in a series of one-credit special topic courses on Strengthening Population Health Resilience in the Time of COVID-19.
Resilient and robust public health and health care systems rely on the interdependence of groups such as individuals, schools, employers, public health professionals, community organizations, first responders, health care professionals, and governments. Now, more than ever, these groups are challenged to increase their collective, scientific public health literacy and capacity to understand and leverage emerging public health data and identify strategies to tackle the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. Strong public health literacy is the foundation for strengthening our collective resilience and response – as we move from flattening the curve, to controlling transmission, and ultimately, to preventing infection with the advent of a vaccine.
Summer session courses are available to adult learners (students and non-students alike) as well as leaders at all levels who want to increase their knowledge and skills to lead or manage a health emergency. Participants have the option to pursue a course for a credit, should they choose.
