Systems Approach for Healthy Communities


This online professional development program is designed to promote the integration of policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) change approaches with educational strategies. The program is designed for organizations whose work focuses on health promotion to help staff understand, reflect, and act on the many factors that influence whether individuals can easily make healthy choices. The program integrates PSE changes with educational strategies in order for participants to develop the skills they need to impact policies, systems, and environments, as well as engage with partners and the community.

This program has been pre-approved for 5.0 hours of continuing education by The Commission on Dietetic Registration, The National Commission on Health Education Credentialing, and The National Board of Public Health Examiners.
