of Seat Pleasant - University of Maryland
College Park Health Partnership
|| The City
of Seat Pleasant (Maryland) and the Department of Behavioral and Community Health at the University of Maryland formed a Health Partnership
in 1999. Since then, other units at the University of Maryland have
joined the Health Partnership.
This partnership has as its intent the improvement of the health of Seat
Pleasant residents, and the enhancement of learning and research
for students and faculty of the University of Maryland. These goals
will be achieved by students and faculty providing to Seat Pleasant
residents health education services that might not otherwise be
available. At the same time, students and faculty will learn from
Seat Pleasant residents and will integrate and apply components
of the health education curriculum at the community level.
Collaborators in the Health Partnership include schools, local and state government,
businesses, churches, agencies, and community organizations.
