Healthy South Texas Professional Education & Training for Improved Public Health

The Healthy South Texas Professional Education and Training for Improved Public Health Program’s objective is to improve health outcomes by enhancing the training, skills, and performance of the Healthy South Texas workforce – including, but not limited to, community health workers, health care professionals, and extension agents. To meet its objective, the Program collaborates with each target audience to tailor and target its efforts to meet the training needs of the overall workforce. Competency-based education and training is developed based on adult learning principles and delivered via in-person workshops and e-learning. Training is designed to equip the workforce with skills and tools needed to educate a wide-ranging population to reduce the highest impact diseases and their consequences, including diabetes, asthma, and infectious disease.
