HLTH 487 - Fieldwork in Health Promotion

The fieldwork experience in health promotion gives students the opportunity to apply theory and knowledge learned in the classroom to the work situation through participation in a health organization’s daily activities.  Students learn how to identify health needs of individuals and groups, and how to plan, coordinate and implement health education activities.

Prerequisites & Notes
Students must have successfully achieved advanced standing in the Health Studies major.  In addition, students must meet with their faculty supervisor to discuss planning information and selection of an appropriate agency, prepare a resume to present to the agency supervisor at the time of the interview (it is recommended that the resume be shared with the faculty supervisor first), and familiarize themselves with the selected agency and then contact the selected agency to arrange for an interview.
