Course Description

This field-based course is designed to provide students with an in-depth understanding of the workings of a progressive city-level public health department. The course classes will be primarily held at the Cambridge Public Health Department (CPHD) and other aligned city agencies, with remaining classes at the Tufts Chinatown campus. At CPHD, students will hear from staff in the epidemiology, public health nursing, health promotion, school health, and environmental health departments about their projects and their day-to-day tasks, in addition to the context and challenges of their work. Students will also attend at least one CPHD / Cambridge community meeting during the semester. Students will select a Cambridge-determined priority policy or practice issue to research and present to CPHD staff, as well as produce reflective assignments on their experiences.
