3092.0 Practice-Based Teaching, Research, and Service

Monday, November 8, 2010: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
The Academic Public Health Caucus is a platform for APHA members to discuss issues of mutual concern regarding academic public health, such as academic public health practice. Specifically, the caucus provides a forum to showcase and learn about innovations in education, training, and academic research not only from public health academicians, but also from practitioners within public health institutions (i.e., federal, state, regional, local, private sector or non-profit organizations or personnel) that administer or participate in Academic/Practice partnerships. Academic/Practice partnerships include, but are not limited to, inter- multi- and trans-disciplinary collaborations to promote health and prevent disease and injury among populations. This session will focus on practice-based teaching, research, and service.
Session Objectives: Discuss the variety of perspectives that incoming public health students bring to this field of study. Identify challenges and opportunities for collaboration between universities and community health organizations. Discuss components of a successful train-the-trainer workshop. Identify effective strategies for infusing service-learning and community-based participatory experiences addressing social justice and health disparities throughout an MPH program curriculum. Design a comprehensive MPH practicum program in partnership with local public health agencies.
