CEHHS Dean Janosky Speaks At 7th Annual International Conference on Health Issues in Arab Communities

This week, CEHHS Dean Janine Janosky traveled to Muscat, Oman to speak at The 7th Annual International Conference on Health Issues in Arab Communities 

Education and Health Workforce Development in Community Settings

Janine E. Janosky, Ph.D., Dean, College of Education, Health, and Human Services, University of Michigan-Dearborn, 19000 Hubbard Drive, Dearborn, MI U.S.A 48126.
"An overarching goal in the health community is to foster and develop social and physical environments that promote wellness and good health for all. One important consideration in working toward this goal is addressing the impact of social determinants, including economic stability, education, social and community context, health and health care, and the neighborhood and built environment. The focus of this presentation will be on the development and implementation of higher education health and wellness academic education and training programs, that include experiential, problem-based, and service-learning. Typically academic programs are designed as subject-specific and didactically focused, thus they do not address all of the known concomitant determinants and interactions of these subjects that together impact wellness and good health. This presentation will provide the context for the interrelationships of these determinants, the need for innovative academic and workforce development programs, the benefits and challenges of these programmatic approaches, as well as anticipated near future careers and professions."
