In order to help address the complex issues of health definition and maintenance, Emory Continuing Education and Emory Predictive Health Institute have partnered to build a Certified Predictive Health Partner program for metro Atlanta area professionals. Many skills are required to successfully handle this growing field of study, including a basic understanding of human biology and ideally, experience with human behavior needs.
Students will be trained to serve as an individual's primary contact for long-term identification and maintenance of health issues, undergoing standardized training as a health partner. Included will be hands-on activities to assist with understanding and explaining health data, as well as instruction on how to use this information to design health promotion action plans. Empathetic and active listening, motivational interviewing and collaborative goal setting will also be covered during the program. Health partner facilitation is customized based upon each individual participant's health data and motivation.
To help ensure students are equipped to perform at the intense level required by this program, admission requires a 4-year bachelor's degree or equivalent experience and or training. Please contact Chelsea Holley to discuss your eligibility at email@example.com or 404-727-5491.
The Center for Health Discovery and Well Being is located on the 18th floor of the Medical Office Tower at Emory University Hospital Midtown, 550 Peachtree Street, Suite 1850 Atlanta, Georgia 30308.
Payment Plans available.
