Program Evaluation for Public Health

As a teacher, Dr. Gell-Redman seeks to introduce students to fundamental aspects of contemporary politics, including public health, development, and migration. His aim in the classroom is to give students the skills to evaluate policies designed to address these issues. To achieve this, he teaches the principles of research design, and, where possible, provide a hands-on introduction to data collection in the field.
