About the Course:

The Community Health Worker Program offers students the opportunity to become health coaches and health educators, working with their own patients to improve blood pressure control and cardiovascular health outcomes in the Berkeley community. Through partnering with Lifelong Medical Care, the City of Berkeley Public Health Division, and the American Heart Association, students will be able to learn more about management of hypertension and about some of the adverse outcomes that could be associated with uncontrolled hypertension. Students will gain experience educating patients on the importance of nutrition and physical activity, and will be trained in coaching techniques such as motivational interviewing. Attendance is mandatory for this one unit course. Students are also highly encouraged to attend our community events, such as Hypertension Sunday and Heart 2 Heart community outreach events.  The first class will be Monday, February 1 from 6 - 7:30 pm in 262 Dwinelle. The first class will be open to the public, and CCN codes will be given out then.

How to Enroll:

Enrollment is on a first come first serve basis. Students must attend the first DeCal section to enroll in the course.
