- Jody Gan is an instructor in the College of Arts and Science’s Department of Health Studies where she teaches Introduction to Public Health, Lifetime Health and Fitness, Multicultural Health, and coordinates internships for public health students. With 25 years of experience planning, implementing and evaluating health programs at the local, state, and national levels, she enjoys sharing her experiences and passion for health and wellness with both health promotion and public health students. Her recent projects include translating the Dietary Guidelines for Americans into a curriculum for community health promoters, developing a campaign encouraging health care providers to universally test their patients for HIV, and designing a national training program on community outreach for “navigators” to boost enrollment of multicultural subgroups in Federally qualified health plans sponsored by the Affordable Care Act. Recently, Jody had the opportunity to share her expertise in health promotion with teens and young adults in a rural community in the mountains of Honduras.
