The People, Power, and Pride of Public Health provides an engaging overview of the incredible accomplishments and promise of the public health field. The first module includes interviews with legendary public health figures whose work led to millions of lives saved with vaccines, air bags and car seats, and the federal Women Infants and Children (WIC) nutrition program. The second module brings key public health tools to life -- including use of data, communications, and policy - through discussions with experienced professionals who have used these tools to save lives. The third module includes a "Carpool Karaoke"-style trip through Baltimore County, Maryland with NACCHO President Dr. Umair Shah to see and hear real public health workers talking about how they serve their communities.

TOP REVIEWS FROM THE PEOPLE, POWER, AND PRIDE OF PUBLIC HEALTH
The short course explains well what constitutes public health and how it has so many aspects and people of diverse fields working for the well being of the public.
The course is highly inspiring and motivated me to see hold strong to public health as my field of study. Indeed public health goes beyond borders.
Very nice course, interactive and perfect. Just that it would be good if everyone is allowed to complete the assessment regardless of certification.
Wow! This is unlike other courses. This is a compilation and celebration of the people who are silently working for the good of all.
