VIEW PROJECT


Spotlights on Health and Rights is a set of four online learning modules developed by CCNMTL and the Heilbrunn Department of Population and Family Health at the Mailman School of Public Health. The modules are designed to help students who come from a wide range of academic and practical experience to develop a common base of essential knowledge on issues central to population and family health.

Coordinated by Lynne Loomis-Price, associate director of academic programs, the Spotlight on Health and Rights modules contain content authored by faculty at the School of Public Health and include four tracks: human rights, demography, reproductive health, and forced migration. Students must complete all four modules and earn a score of 80 percent or better on an online exam before they can graduate. In addition, many instructors assign one or more of the modules as prerequisites for their courses, with the aim of standardizing student entry-level knowledge and freeing class time to delve more deeply into the modules' topics.
