Lectures, field work. Four 8-hour classroom sessions, one week field work, one week writing. January 4-15, 2010

This course provides students with an unusual opportunity to work alongside colleagues from the CDC in Atlanta and around the country in the design of an evaluation of the CDC program in public health. The course will begin with a one week introduction to the theory and practice of evaluation as well as an introduction to the issues involved in the design and monitoring of public health programs. This component will be held in Atlanta at CDC campus.

During the second week of class, students will travel to 12 states or other locations and work with CDC and public health officials to develop an evaluation plan for CDC funded public health programs. This evaluation plan will be used by the program mangers and the CDC to evaluate their active public health programs for the next 2-3 years.

The course will be offered for credit (1.25 credits) but can also be taken without credit (audit) if a student prefers. Students will travel through the auspices of the CDC who will cover all costs associated with flights, accommodation and meals.
