I am on SABBATICAL in Spring and Fall semesters of 2016.  I will be back in the classroom in January 2017. 
In the Spring 2017 Semester I teach HLTH 54 (online and face-to-face on MW 11:10-12:25) and HLTH 48 (M 5:10-8:00).  

You will find on this site some basic information about me as a teacher, and also the classes I teach. I have taught in the Health Education department at CCSF since 2004 (http://www.ccsf.edu/healthed).

I also work with the Interdisciplinary Studies Department (http://ccsf.edu/idst).  The chair of Interdisciplinary Studies and a great source of information on all the IDST programs is Lauren Muller

About Me:

I have been teaching at CCSF since 2004, and have over 20 years of experience in adult education and community health.  My work has touched on issues of human rights, violence prevention, gender, leadership development, workforce development and community mobilization. I love teaching at CCSF because of the diversity of students, the commitment of the faculty and the opportunity to make a difference.  My classes are interactive, with activities, discussion and video in addition to lecture. I received my Masters in Public Health (Community Health Education) from U.C. Berkeley in 1998. 

The Courses I Teach:
I have taught a number of different courses at City College.   Each course has a link to another page, with more info on it.

In Spring 2016 and Fall 2016 I am on sabbatical.  I will be away from campus the whole year, and will return in Spring 2017.

HLTH 54: Introduction to Public Health (online)          


I also sometimes teach HLTH 38HLTH 221, HLTH 90C HLTH 33, and HLTH 53.

HLTH 221 is or has been part of the Metro Academy of Health.  For more information about Metro, go to http://www.ccsf.edu/metrohealth

HLTH 48 and HLTH 38 are open to all students and they are also part of the Trauma Prevention & Recovery Certificate.  For more information on the Trauma Certificate, go to http://www.ccsf.edu/trauma.
