Creating Health Education Materials for the Public
Teaching Strategy Description:
Students have the opportunity to apply the theory learned in the classroom about plain language and social marketing principles when developing health education materials (e.g. fact sheets, posters, tri-folds) and when speaking to clients. Students also created a Facebook page for the Peer-Peer Health Promotion Program and regularly update it.
- Third year community clinical placement program; placements occur primarily on campus but may also take place in the community
