LIA Social Determinants of Health Microcredential Program

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 course is not the equivalent of a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA/PCT) or Medical Assistant (MA) program. This course is not designed for pediatric health screening.
