Public Health & YOU

Public Health & YOU is an initiative of the IU School of Public Health-Bloomington that seeks to provide high quality education and training to Indiana’s health workers in order to increase awareness about public health, and improve public health outcomes.

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

Professional development certificates are earned after completing a series of Public Health & YOU online courses.

These courses, developed by IU School of Public Health-Bloomington faculty and public health experts, are relevant, provide high-quality instruction and information, and give public health workers an opportunity for continuing education delivered in a user-friendly, convenient way.

Furthering the commitment of Public Health & YOU to provide education on a wide variety of public health topics, we offer a variety of no-cost webinars that also provide CEU’s. In each webinar, you’ll learn from an IU School of Public Health-Bloomington expert about a specific public health topic. Our goal is to foster community engagement in public health and provide important, relevant and useful information to those in our community.
