Global Tobacco Control Program Description
The Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health (JHSPH) proposes a substantial modification to the existing and previously endorsed Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Global Tobacco Control program, to update curriculum and offer an online format. The proposed substantial modifications will prepare leaders in public health science and practice to address current and future public health challenges. It is a primary goal of the program to provide skills-based education in tobacco control to the global public health workforce. <br> <br>The overall aim of this program is to provide formal education to research scientists and public health professionals that equips them with the technical skills necessary to develop and effectively communicate the evidence that is required to support effective tobacco control policy development, implementation, and evaluation. This certificate is adapted from online and onsite course content from an existing Global Tobacco Control certificate, and incorporates existing online courses. Delivering the certificate in a fully online format will allow greater accessibility for participants from the U.S. and around the world. <br>
