Learn to identify community health needs, collect data, and plan programs that encourage healthy lifestyles. You’ll be taught by professionals in all areas of health education. They know their stuff, and they’ll teach it to you through projects that engage your critical thinking skills. A Monroe degree in public health provides you with a comprehensive understanding of the American public health care system.
