IU Bloomington Launches Free Online Courses for Hoosier Health Workers

The Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington has announced the launch of the “Public Health & You” initiative, a new program aimed at enhancing the knowledge and skills of Indiana’s front-line public health workers.

Designed specifically for professionals and practitioners whose work impacts the health of the public, the initiative offers free online courses that were developed in conjunction with the Indiana State Department of Health, IU Health Bloomington Hospital, and the Indiana Public Health Association.

“The School of Public Health-Bloomington is committed to our long-standing partnerships with those who work each day to improve the health of Hoosiers,” said Dean Mohammad Torabi, founding dean and chancellor’s professor at the IU School of Public Health-Bloomington. “By providing these dedicated health professionals with these no-cost and community-focused tools, we not only help them enhance their knowledge and skills, but ultimately help all of us here in Indiana, because a better-prepared public health workforce means a healthier Indiana. A healthier Indiana means improved economic stability and enhanced quality of life for all Hoosiers.”
