Who We Are

The Public Health Learning Network (PHLN) is an active consortium of public health educators, practitioners, and thought leaders. We aim to advance public health practice and improve population health in the United States. The PHLN seeks to elevate public health practice by promoting the creation, collaboration, and distribution of high-quality, relevant, and accessible training and education opportunities for the public health workforce.

Our growing network of university-based regional public health training centers and partners provides skills-based training for the public health workforce in communities across the United States, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and U.S. territories.

Who We Serve

The learners who turn to us for quality training resources work in local, tribal, and state health departments as well as the federal government. They also work in community organizations, hospitals, businesses, universities, and schools.

They include seasoned leaders and new professionals, students and educators, research specialists
and practitioners—all committed to lifelong learning.

What We Offer

Public health professionals rely on us to help them keep up in a dynamic field—no matter their position, area of expertise, or work setting.

Our high-quality training courses and tools are free, adaptable, and easy to access; you can find them online or in-person.

What is distinct about the PHLN is our long-standing relationship with learners and partner organizations within communities, coupled with a national presence that offers cohesive and rigorous development and delivery of education and knowledge sharing across the country.
