Community Engagement in Research and Population Health

This Coursera course was developed by Theresa Green, PhD, MBA, director of Community Health Policy and Education and assistant professor of Public Health Sciences at the University of Rochester CTSI.

Explore the importance of engaging our community as researchers, educators and managers to improve the health of our population. Learn how health systems are changing to better measure and address community needs, both inside and outside of health care delivery.

Users can learn at their own pace, with their own deadlines. The course is made up of informative videos and readings – with a few quizzes throughout. CCHP faculty and staff also contributed their expertise in some of the videos. A certificate of completion is available at the end of the course, for a fee.

Learning Objectives

In this course, participants will gain an understanding of the changing landscape of the health system, learn how delivery systems work together to plan health improvement and how effective community-based participation in research and intervention is crucial to developing effective solutions.
