Dr. Lisa McCormick Awarded Grant From the Center for Teaching and Learning

School of Public Health

Lisa McCormick, DrPH, associate professor of public health, is the recipient of one of ten grants awarded by the Center for Teaching and Learning to promote innovative teaching.  The grant supports new approaches to instruction and learning in a team environment.  Dr. McCormick will take students outside the classroom to demonstrate how priority health concerns are being addressed to improve population health in a new study abroad course, “Exploring Population Health: On the road in the Deep South.” She will use team-based learning to help students relate specific knowledge to public health practice and build important interprofessional team-based practice skills needed to solve critical public health issues.
