The Community Colleges and Public Health (CC&PH) Project, Phase 2, was recommended by a consensus of the Expert Panel which examined the potential roles that community colleges could play in the continuum of education in public health. Phase 2 will examine the roles that community colleges should play by developing prototype curricula for community college programs that can fulfill workforce needs and provide career ladders for graduates.
Prototype curricular models were developed for two areas, "Public Health: Generalist and Specializations" and "Health Navigator," in collaboration with representatives from community colleges, public health education programs, and national associations for public health practice and education. A set of recommendations was also developed for community colleges in implementing public health education curriculum.
The final report on Phase 2 of the project will be available in September 2014.
