HSC launches community health education program

 

The University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth recently launched HSC Learning Plus, an online health education platform open to everyone.

The searchable website offers a robust portfolio of noncredit classes, short courses, microcredentials and certificates for health care professionals seeking continuing education credits, learners adding microcredentials to their resumes or anyone wanting to learn about health-related subjects or learn a new skill.

For more than a decade, HSC has provided accredited continuing medical education to those within the health care community. Earlier this year, Dr. Charles Taylor, HSC provost and executive vice president for academic affairs, combined the team responsible for CE credits with the internal team that creates the educational assets for degree programs. This merger created a single, integrated team, the Division of Academic Innovation, focused on innovation and excellence in health education both on campus and in the community.

TCOM’s Dr. Shane Fernando discusses vaccine exemption rates on CBS11

 

Vaccine exemption rates have increased in virtually all North Texas school districts in the past five years, according to state records.

Doctors are worried it makes the community more vulnerable to outbreaks of diseases like the measles.

“Measles, mumps and rubella, diphtheria, Hep A – all these vaccines that are really helpful in preventing terrible diseases from impacting our children’s lives are being neglected,” said Dr. Shane Fernando, a clinical epidemiologist at the UNT Health Science Center.
