This month’s session is titled Community Outreach Using Lessons from Public Health Communication and will be facilitated by Dr. Christine Carmichael of Fair Forests Consulting. In this 90-minute training, Alliance for Community Trees members will gain an understanding of:

  • The basic principles of the popular education model and how it is used to promote improved health.
  • The popular education model as a method for teaching community volunteers/ambassadors and youth tree teams about public health and urban forestry.
  • Resources to share with residents in underserved communities that increase learning about urban trees and public health.
