Making a Public Health Difference

November 20th, 2012

In public health, we don’t gather data just for the sake of gathering data.  Our goal is use that data to see what kind of issues there are, look for programs that are proven to reduce bad outcomes and help the communities implement them. One key area we watch is Maternal and Child Health because making changes in that can help improve the health of the next generation.  But like all important professions, we need more people working in the field. 

That’s where the U of A’s Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health Graduate Certificate program in Maternal & Child Health Epidemiology comes in. What’s even better is that federal funds will provide 10-15 scholarships to professionals working with American Indian and underserved communities nationally.  The scholarships (valued at over $11K) will be awarded for the 2013-14 school year, but you can apply now. The deadline is March 1, 2013.
