About the Course

Do a lot of people in your neighborhood all seem to have the same sickness? Are people concerned about high rates of cancer? Your community may want to explore the possibility of a disease cluster, which happens when there is a higher number of cases of disease than expected. When communities hear about cases of disease in their neighborhood, they are rightfully concerned. However, the results of investigations by the health department often find no evidence of a cluster. This course will help you understand what a disease cluster is and how it is studied. The goal is to empower community (or citizen) scientists, and to help build better relationships between communities and health officials....

The peer review assignment takes a little while to get graded because there aren't that many people enrolled, otherwise, it's a great class with case study lectures that showcase disease clusters.

Course content is well explained in a simple manner that makes it easy to understand. Moreover, the content is very key for any public health professional. I am glad I took this course!

The course overall is good, but the fact that uses peer reviews make it unfair. First because not everybody is at the same level of preparation, second because not everybody is making the same effort, so you are submitted to the opinion of someone that maybe is not taking the course serious, so the reviews can be unfair and frustrating. And you have to review to get your certificate and if there's no submissions to review you need to wait to finish your course, again you are attached to somebody else to finish, for an online course that's a problem.

The actual course content was truly exceptional and I don't say that lightly, so if you just want to take the course to learn and not for the certificate, I'd highly recommend it. However, my experiene with trying to get information and clarification about the final project, how to actually get a reviewer (a course requirement), and just generally finding support was the exact opposite. If it had been easy to find support I would have given the highest rating possible.
