Students Produce Award-Winning Video

Students in the spring semester 2010 Foundations of Public Health Nursing class taught by Lisa Sitler, RN, MSN, created a video that was recently listed on Health Hawk’s “50 Excellent Public Health Videos.”

The video was created by Alisa Ruhl, Margie Moss, Rose LaVallee, Debbi Smith and Bob Vlum. First shared on, it features a series of snapshots of places in the community that support or neglect public health. Each place or thing is marked with a bright red sticker that reads “This is public health.” To see the award-winning video click here.
