The Community and Public Health certificate program will allow students to enter the workforce as Community Health Navigators or continue their education in a variety of community health, social services and allied health fields.
Students will develop critical skills allowing them to become advocates for the population for which they serve, have a deep and complete understanding of the community health and the overall healthcare system. They will be able to successfully share and apply this knowledge to assist and empower their clients to gain the appropriate health resources to hopefully avoid unnecessary hospitalizations and have improved quality of life.
