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.

How to Earn It

NOTE: In order to start earning this microcredential and access the MIDAS Education platform, students must register. Please

To register go to
or click the button below


1. Attend training and demonstrate knowledge and skills through class participation

The learner attends and participates from a one hour in person or virtual (live) training provided by Intermountain Healthcare and takes notes on the Attendance and Participation Form to upload as Evidence #1.
An Intermountain Healthcare representative will provide the necessary forms and official Intermountain Healthcare envelope for your students to place them in after completion.

2. Perform and submit a minimum of two health screenings

The learner performs a minimum of two health screenings and completes the forms provided by Intermountain Healthcare. Students will then place the screening forms inside the official Intermountain Healthcare envelope, seal it, and return to the teacher.
Students will then complete the Implementation (Health Screening Verification) Form with teacher’s signature and upload it to the MIDAS site as Evidence #2.

3. Interpret the collected data and complete the Outcome Reveal Report

The learner notifies each adult involved (parents, legal guardians, adult family members) of the outcome of the health screening and writes a one paragraph testimonial report about the results for each adult that participated.

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?

This Outcome Reveal Report must be submitted as one evidence document and uploaded to the MIDAS site as Evidence #3.

NOTE: Even if you screen 20 adults, you will submit the testimonials on ONE document.

4. Complete a Reflection and submit Badge for Review

Students will complete a Reflection essay or video on “How this course has impacted my life.” This will be Evidence #4.

The following questions may be used as a guide to complete the written response or video reflection:

What did you like about this course and the whole experience?
What did you learn through this course?
Did this give you a new perspective, challenge your point of view, or introduce you to new techniques, skills, processes?
What positive contribution did this course make toward your future college or career goals?
