Webinar on Collaboration in Public Health: Coalition-Building and Community Engagement

Join Dr. Michael Schwab to earn (1) CECH Credit.Collaboration and cooperation are ancient principles for effective group activity. Along with community participation, they have been recognized as key elements of public health since the 1960s. Yet there is often misunderstanding of the various types or degrees of coalition and community engagement, and the difficulties that can arise when researchers try to engage with communities as research or program partners. In this webinar, we will discuss the advantages and limitations of collaboration, and the skills needed to effectively practice it.Accreditation StatementWalden University is a designated provider (ID# 123343) of continuing education contact hours (CECH) in health education by the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, Inc.Walden University is an approved provider of CPH recertification credits by the National Board of Public Health Examiners.
