LOS ANGELES, April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following on the heels of the successful launch of its first Master of Public Health Program online, The Chicago School of Professional Psychology (TCSPP)—the leading nonprofit national graduate school devoted exclusively to psychology and related behavioral and health sciences, is now accepting applications for its summer online M.P.H. Program, as well as its fall on-ground M.P.H Program at its Los Angeles Campus located in the downtown area. View a listing of our free, program-related Go-To-Webinars below during National Public Health Week.
The program is specifically designed for working adults interested in making a difference in the health and wellness of others through the promotion of community and public health. Students also have the ability to deepen an area of interest through the selection of courses from electives in three areas: Global Health, Psycho-Behavioral Dimensions of Public Health, and Public Health Leadership. Students can choose to focus in one of those three areas or they can decide to take electives from all of those areas.
First-time student Vernita Platt, who is currently enrolled in the M.P.H. Online Program, had this to say about why she chose The Chicago School: "I really was looking for a graduate program that supported active participation and service in the community. The TCSPP staff has been open and encourages conversation that has created a sense of community. I want to use what I learn to be a better advocate in the community and a promoter of healthier life choices. I'm very interested in focusing on the leadership aspect of the M.P.H., so that I can be better prepared to one day create and monitor programs in my community."
The 42-credit degree, consisting of a core of 27 credits, six credits of field work and capstone, and nine credits of an emphasis area is built of the standards of the Council on Education for Public Health (CePH), with the curriculum based on the competency model published by the Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH).

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
