The People, Power, and Pride of Public Health provides an engaging overview of the incredible accomplishments and promise of the public health field. The first module includes interviews with legendary public health figures whose work led to millions of lives saved with vaccines, air bags and car seats, and the federal Women Infants and Children (WIC) nutrition program. The second module brings key public health tools to life -- including use of data, communications, and policy - through discussions with experienced professionals who have used these tools to save lives. The third module includes a "Carpool Karaoke"-style trip through Baltimore County, Maryland with NACCHO President Dr. Umair Shah to see and hear real public health workers talking about how they serve their communities.

TOP REVIEWS FROM THE PEOPLE, POWER, AND PRIDE OF PUBLIC HEALTH
I really enjoyed this course. Very informative, the instructor was clear and engaging. The interviews and ride along were awesome.
The course was very good and interesting however, boring. The videos did not gain the attention of the pupil as they were not very interactive and it was just two people talking.
Quick and easy course, but informative and everyone in the videos provide a good explanation of what they do as well as display a passion for their service.
Very informative. For someone in the healthcare industry, I can use much of what I learned to educate my community and the patients I deal with at work.
