Improve your ability to effectively plan, implement, and communicate wellness initiatives for individuals, communities, and organizations. You will learn necessary data collection methods, how to develop a logic model, and ways to differentiate quantitative and qualitative data that are important factors in developing and evaluating initiatives.
