Teaching Prevention Webinar: Strategies for Bringing Prevention to the Classroom

How can we prepare future health and public health professionals for the renewed national focus on prevention in healthcare? Please join hosts Larry Cohen and Sana Chehimi and presenters to learn new strategies for infusing your public health and medical curricula with primary prevention thinking. The panel's combined experience in prevention training, curricular development, and teaching will provide you with the tools to build the case for primary prevention and incorporate it into your courses. You will be able to engage future health leaders and build their capacity to think of solutions that solve multiple problems.
