Community Health students need to apply the knowledge they receive in 
the classroom to improve their skills in delivery of health promotions 
for the community’s benefit.  The purpose of this study was to develop 
a capstone course in a community health curriculum that would require 
students to learn to assess community needs, plan a health promotion, 
market their product, present and evaluate their community health 
programs. An additional goal was to evaluate the students’ perceived 
learning as compared to other courses students were taking or had taken.
