collaboration student story
Collaboration: Student Story

The community-based meeting was a wonderful example of public health officials collaborating with other groups to help solve problems. By having the different communities in the county come together, the County Human Services learned of issues that are important to the community.

Sometimes it is those issues that do not appear on paper that are the issues that are of most relevance to the community. The County Human Services and these community groups develop plans to meet the needs of the community that they serve. The groups represented at the meeting are also great resources to each other and offer each other support.

effective communication student story
Effective Communication: Student Story

At the WIC clinic, the public health nurse is unarguably very dedicated, informed, and passionate about her work.

I was able to observe several interactions between the public health nurse and the clients. The public health nurse provided the clients with an array of information that would assist them in ensuring the health of themselves and their children.

There did not seem to be a question that went unanswered or a topic that went without discussion. In addition, the public health nurse demonstrated immense flexibility and sensitivity to cultural and language differences.

Safe Walking Paths

holistic aspects student story
Holistic Aspects: Student Story

We…began to prepare for this project by doing background research on the problem of obesity, what health problems came from being overweight, and the role of walking in reducing these problems. After that, we planned how we would implement our study…looking at city maps and selecting the routes that we wished to walk.

We also got a standardized survey …. We proceeded to walk each of these paths and mark down the positive and negative attributes of each as we saw them. The data was presented to a group of city officials along with our conclusions so they could have some data to help guide them in the use of their grant money.

  • Alternative Solutions
    • Provide orientation sessions for students with non-public health agency clinical experience.
    • Establish core set of orientation content and expectations
public health agency perspectives
