Supporting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Public Health Workforce Development Initiative
NNPHI is working with CDC's Scientific Education and Professional Development Program Office (SEPDPO), which established a Public Health Workforce Development Initiative in 2011 to strengthen the public health workforce by influencing policy and improving quality, availability, and accessibility of training and workforce development. On December 13-14, 2012, CDC SEPDPO convened the Public Health Workforce Summit, Modernizing the Workforce for the Public's Health: Shifting the Balance in Atlanta, GA.
Over 40 organizations, including CDC Centers, Institutes, and Offices (CIOs); the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA); public health practice organizations; academic associations; healthcare disciplines; nonprofit associations; and foundations participated in the Summit.
