CHHS Dean Teaches CHHS 205 Course Focused on Interprofessional Collaboration

On Jan. 23, CHHS Dean Charles Hardy guest lectured on the Health and Human Services (Local, National and International) Structures and Organizations in CHHS 205, Introduction to Health and Human Services. 

In the past, CHHS 205 was taught in the fall semester only, but due to student demand, this is the first time the course is being taught in the spring semester, as well. Currently, there are 83 students enrolled in CHHS 205 for the spring 2018 semester.

CHHS 205 explores career opportunities and overarching topics in health and human services fields. In addition, the history, values, and economic and political environmental changes are discussed in relation to the U.S. health and human service system. CHHS 205 provides a foundation and exposure into the variety of health and human service professions through panel presentations, guest speakers, lectures and community engagement. 

In addition, students work together in small discussion groups and complete final team projects focused on interprofessional collaboration, which is one of the three staples of CHHS.
