Rothenberger Institute launches

The SPH announces the launch of the Rothenberger Institute, an organization dedicated to improving the health of students through online courses developed by top public health experts.

The Rothenberger Institute will build on successful existing courses— Alcohol and College Life and Sleep, Eat, and Exercise—conceived by its namesake, the late James Rothenberger, who was a national health expert and an early champion of web-based education. Rothenberger, a beloved SPH instructor, taught some 100,000 students during his 35 years at the University of Minnesota.

“The strength of the curriculum that Jim began is that it offers flexible content students can learn through various media,” says institute director Jolynn Gardner. “Students can listen to or read content at their computer, print lessons, or download audio files to an iPod.”
