University of Western States - Public Health Week Activity

The APHA Chiropractic Health Care section has been working on a set of core public health competencies for chiropractic programs. And you can be part of it! A working group of that section is now looking to develop engagement strategies to incorporate these public health competencies into educational programs.

University of Western States (UWS) is soliciting ideas for learning activities that incorporate these competencies. Submit your ideas to [email protected] by 5 p.m. on April 8. A panel of judges will announce the winners on April 15. Several other chiropractic schools are participating and all winning entries will be shared among the schools so that these great ideas have the potential to be implemented in multiple schools. Winners will receive a one-year membership to the OPHA Chiropractic Section (limited quantity), a gift certificate to the UWS campus store, and all the notoriety we can muster!
