Last updated on Wednesday, June 4, 2014

(BLOOMINGTON) - The Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington is offering five free online classes to Indiana’s public health workers.

The school announced the launch of the new "Public Health & You" initiative, which is designed specifically for professionals and practitioners whose work impacts the health of the public.

Courses for the project were developed in conjunction with the Indiana State Department of Health, IU Health Bloomington Hospital and the Indiana Public Health Association.

Michael Reece, associate dean for research and graduate studies at the IU School of Public Health-Bloomington, says the Public Health & You campaign also seeks to expand the reach of traditional public health.

"Thousands of individuals in the state, from such diverse organizations as traditional public health departments to fitness centers, churches, parks and recreation departments, and youth-serving organizations, provide important services every day that influence health," he says.

"This set of easy-to-use online courses was designed in partnership with these individuals and is appropriate for anyone who wants to enhance their work to promote the health of those in their community."

By completing all five classes, participants can earn a Professional Development Certificate in Public Health from the IU School of Public Health-Bloomington.
