The Association for Prevention Teaching and Research (APTR) and the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AACU) has selected Creighton University to participate in its Undergraduate Curriculum Development Institute, July 14-15, in Crystal City, Va. The institute is designed to help educators integrate public health education into the undergraduate curriculum.

Judith Lee Kissell, Ph.D., director of Creighton’s Health Administration and Policy program; Linda Ohri, Pharm.D., associate professor of pharmacy practice; Alex Rodlach, Ph.D., assistant professor of sociology and anthropology; and Marty Wilken, R.N., Ph.D., assistant professor of nursing, will represent Creighton at the conference.

The Creighton faculty team is one of about 60 nationwide to be awarded grants from the APTR and the AACU to participate in the institute.
