My office hours in Fall 2015 semester:  Mondays and Wednesdays, 12:30-1:00 and 3:30-4:00 - or by appointment.  I can also make appointments for us to meet by phone, Skype or Google Hangout, if you are unable to come to campus during my office hours.

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 am no longer the coordinator  of the Trauma Prevention & Recovery Certificate in the Interdisciplinary Studies Dept but you can get more information about the certificate at  www.ccsf.edu/trauma or you can contact 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, cross-cultural understanding, 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 highly interactive, with activities, discussion and video in addition to lecture. I currently serve on the Executive Board of the faculty union, AFT 2121.  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 Fall 2015 I teach HLTH 48: Intro to Public Health (Mondays 4-7),  HLTH 38: Trauma Response & Recovery (Wednesdays 4-7), HLTH 54: Intro to Public Health (MW 11:10-12:25 - and also 2 online sections).

HLTH 54: Introduction to Public Health (online)           (fall 2015)
(Offered both in a face-to-face classroom (MUB 180, MW 11:10-12:25) and as two fully-online sections)

HLTH 48:  Violence as a Public Health Issue                (fall 2015)

HLTH 38:  Trauma Response and Recovery                    (fall 2015)    (Due to low enrollment, this section is likely to be cancelled.)


I also sometimes teach HLTH 221, HLTH 90C HLTH 33, and HLTH 53 - but not this semester.

HLTH 221 is part of the Metro Academy of Health and is limited to students in Metro.  For more information about Metro, contact Beth Freedman at 239-3513 or visit this website:  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.   Both classes now have NO prerequisites (despite what it says in the schedule).  For more information, see the subpage titled Trauma Certificate or go to http://www.ccsf.edu/trauma.
