Intermountain Healthcare and Latinos In Action have partnered up to provide students with the opportunity to get trained as Health Screeners. This micro-credential provides a means to develop skills and a knowledge base for addressing social determinants of health, pre-diabetes, high blood pressure, and depression. The course will help you to gain content expertise and necessary skills to successfully perform health screenings, interpret the collected data, and become a health advocate.

NOTE: This portion focuses on the screened person’s reaction. It could include answers to the following: How did that conversation go? How did they react- with concern, surprise, relief? Did the result cause the adult to want to take any further action such as visiting a doctor, changing eating or exercise habits?
NOTE: Even if you screen 20 adults, you will submit the testimonials on ONE document.
