CSUFThe DHPE Internship and Fellowship Program sponsored the Shaping Policy for HealthTM (SPH) Introduction to the Policy Change Process workshop at California State University Fresno (CSUF) on February 8, 2013. Through lecture, discussion and group activities, participants became familiar with the policy process. Topics covered in the introductory course included: 1) framing health and social problems in terms of socio-political values; 2) policy analysis tools and interpretation; 3) advocacy strategies and tactics; 4) influencing the bureaucratic rulemaking process; and 5) unique evaluation concerns when shaping policy for health.

SPH TrainersThere were 46 participants in the one day training comprised of public health professionals from state and local agencies, educators, students, current and former interns, preceptors and key partners collaborating on policy, environmental, or systems change initiatives. There were 24 participants from the campus and DHPE was excited to see that the majority of these were students. The SPH trainers, Reggie Caldwell and Jacqueline Coleman, facilitated the interactive and engaging workshop. The SPH training was hosted by CSUF and special thanks goes out to Edward Boyle, Vickie Krenz and Miguel Perez from the Department of Public Health for their support of the training and the DHPE Internship Program.
