Through this certificate, program participants will acquire advanced knowledge and skills in community health sciences including:

  • The role of health education and health promotion in improving population health
  • Program planning, development and evaluation skills
  • Quantitative and qualitative research methods useful at the community level
  • Policy development and advocacy skills.
