The poster was entitled Immersing Online Students through Role Plays, a Case Study, and Group Work: Reconceptualizing an Environmental Quality and Health Course and depicted an innovative collaboration between the two presenters. The fully online course — Public Health 60: Environmental Health and Quality — has been offered online three times: twice in summer and once in Winter 2018. The course is unique in its design in that it features a three-pronged design to engage students: a case study; student role-playing; and weekly mandatory online synchronous team meetings.
We aim to contextualize the growing body of research on the sequelae of military service in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. We employ a social–ecological (SE) framework for the taxonomy of military health research and classify risk as arising from the individual, family, community, and the institutional levels. We intend for this review to inform enhanced health promotion efforts in military communities.
