This Community Health course is one of three courses focused on Community Health. This 12-module course focuses on common and transmittable diseases. This course will help you explore numerous diseases, and provides practical disease recognition criteria, disease transmission and prevention guidelines, and health education information. It can also be taught as a community health seminar, as part of an evangelism project, during a health expo, in small groups, and in other venues.
After completing this course, you will earn 1 CEU and a certificate of completion in your Adventist Learning Community e-portfolio.
You will learn how to apply healthy living guidelines in both rural and urban communities that may not have access to quality medical care. This course is not a portion of a health care practitioner license. It does not give you the right to diagnose, prescribe, or oversee medical treatment, of any kind. If you or someone you know is experiencing a chronic medical condition please contact a family physician. If you or someone you know is experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 or activate your local emergency response system.
