Program Description

The Addressing Public Health Disparities micro-credential is comprised of a series of digital badges. The micro-credential includes one course combined with a local, national and international outreach experience. This micro-credential is open to licensed health care professionals, students (both undergraduate and graduate) and faculty teaching health profession programs, who are interested in gaining a perspective on public health and participating in collaborative practice outreach missions. Your experiences in this program will enable collaboration with non-profit organizations, educators, students and practitioners to function as part of a multi-disciplinary team to provide screenings, education and direct patient care to those that need it most.

The School of Dental Medicine is happy to offer this micro-credential in collaboration with the School of Nursing, the School of Public Health and Health Professions, and the Community for Global Health Equity.
