Harrisburg University of Science and Technology will launch an awareness campaign to benefit children and adults in Harrisburg and nearby communities. The university organized the Central Pennsylvania Health Coalition that will be community focused. The outreach effort will address gun violence, domestic violence, trauma, and other public health issues. The target population will be children ages 6-12 and their family members. The goal is to identify factors that contribute to the problems and come up with solutions.
ABC-27 spoke about the new initiative with Dr. Nancy Mimm, who leads the Population Health programs at Harrisburg University. View the segment here: https://www.abc27.com/news/top-stories/harrisburg-university-forms-coalition-to-help-save-lives-in-the-community/
Harrisburg University offers an 18-semester hour Population Health Management master’s certificate program that provides the student with the core knowledge needed to improve population focused solutions. This certificate provides an interdisciplinary teaching focus that not only teaches the needed methodologies of population health management but the application and evaluation of population health management.
