The JFK, Jr. Institute for Worker Education at CUNY, in association with Queensborough Community College, is now accepting applications for additional cohorts to begin the Certificate in Health Coaching and Care Coordination in spring 2013. This 10-credit, 5 course certificate is offered at no tuition cost to frontline workers in the allied health fields who have a GED or High School Diploma, are residents of NYS, and are available to commit to completing a sequence of 5 courses (a college bridge course and 4 credited courses) through December 2013.

The application packet has been updated for spring 2013, and includes detailed program information, eligibility criteria, and required forms. The application can be accessed on our website: http://www.cuny.edu/about/administration/offices/hhs/hps-program/CHCCCApplication.Spring2013.pdf.

“As with our past offerings, this will be a similarly competitive admissions process and I am happy to speak directly with individuals who have questions regarding the Certificate and eligibility,” said Ashleigh Thompson, Ph.D., Deputy to the University Dean for Health and Human Services and Deputy Director, JFK, Jr. Institute for Worker Education. “Agency representatives and interested applicants are also encouraged to take advantage of a live webinar to learn more about the Certificate and application process.”
