Full course description

PLEASE NOTE: No CE or certificate are available for this free course.

Practice-based research is at the core of the Journal of Public Health Management and Practice (JPHMP) mission. Practitioners are doing good and important work, inside and outside COVID-19 response, and are doing work that the broader community might benefit from learning more about. State and local public health practitioners are a primary readership of the journal and, increasingly, are also a significant portion of the author base. This second session in the four-part series will review how to pick a topic, sketch an outline, and develop a manuscript background.
