Applications Now Being Accepted By The Chicago School Of Professional Psychology For Master Of Public Health Programs In Summer and Fall 2014

Free Webinars Offered During National Public Health Week

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).

In recognition of National Public Health Week 2014, April 7-13, TCSPP's M.P.H. staff will be holding a series of webinars as follows:

Webinar: Overview of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Free Education Resources

Webinar: Psychology and Public Health - The Intersection of Wellness

Topic: A bridge is being built between psychology's focus on individual well-being and Public Health's interest in wellness at the population level. Psychologists possess unique skill sets that enable them to identify interactions between behaviors and environmental factors that are relevant to the individual and society at large. Examples range from risk factors for illness and injury to patterns of crime. Psychologists have both opportunity and obligation to play a role in prevention, intervention, and recovery in the Public Health domain.

Chronic Illness

When: Thursday, April 10, 6-7 p.m. CDT

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications?

The taxi industry never saw Uber coming.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
