PUBLIC HEALTH AMBASSADOR PROGRAM

NYU Student Affairs, 2020-2021

 

In direct response to COVID-19, the public health program establishes behavioral health protocols as social norms at NYU. The program's mission is to inspire the NYU community to comply with public health guidelines and keep each other safe through a community of PHAs. PHAs are on-campus students hired and trained to model positive health behavior, provide PPE, and answer public health questions at NYU.

 

Part of an instrumental team that developed the program's goals and training by researching other public health initiatives, developing training curriculum and presentations, presenting information, and creating post-training surveys.

HEALTH CENTER Navigation project 

NYU Student Health Center, 2018-2020

 

NYU's Student Health Center Communication Team wanted to reduce confusion on the health center’s fourth floor. 

Working from Lean Methodology, six PDSA cycles were conducted, including one focus group with SHC staff and over ten tests of change. Some of the successful PDSA cycles included clearing away old print materials, rearranging the waiting area chairs, establishing a single location for news and information (signage), increasing the overhead lighting, and developing check-in signage. 

 

Overall, four areas of confusion were noted, and three consequently improved. In terms of lean methodology, waste was decreased overall.

These print materials minimized confusion and dissatisfaction consistently and meaningfully at various touchpoints on the 4th floor receiving area by improving navigation.
