Make a difference


Some health professionals want to help more than one client or patient at a time. If you want to make a difference for an entire population, this certificate will help you develop the policy knowledge and skills to make that change happen.

Develop skills for positive change

In the certificate program, you will learn to:  

  • identify social and personal determinants of health important in policy development
  • analyze institutional policies, ordinances, or legislation
  • write policy for an agency, a company, or a nation
  • influence policy makers on the job, or at the local, state, or national level
  • advocate for change in your community or your country
