Sharon HS 159 Student Poster Presentation

News & Events

HS 159 is a class in which students develop a community health plan that is based on an assessment of needs and community assets. The plan includes interventions that reflect "Best Practices" and recognize the value of partnerships, media advocacy and policy advocacy. Towards the end of the semester, students are required to create a poster of their program proposal that displays their goals and objectives as well as their program methods.  The poster presentations are a way for students to demonstarte their ability to engage in a professional environment, and use the concepts of health promotion and public health.
