Evidence-based Public Health Training

This two day training is designed for local health practitioners to gain experience in developing programs based on sound scientific principles.  The course covers the essential steps to develop a community needs assessment, to search scientific literature to identify and select among various effective interventions, to weigh the options in choosing an approach, and to develop a programmatic response.  The training is delivered to up to 24 people in teams of two to four from each organization.  Although no longer offered routinely by the Prevention Research Center and NYS Health Department staff, interested parties should contact us to explore the possibility of an ad hoc training for your agency or group of organizations.
