The role and responsibility of the environmental health profession is undergoing a metamorphosis due to the rapidly changing political and financial landscape. This condition is giving rise to the need for new skills in navigating these emerging challenges. Two of those skills are critical thinking and framing techniques. This professional development course will provide the attendees the tools to actively and skillfully conceptualize, analyze, synthesize, and evaluate information.
