About the Public Health Improvement Training
Building on more than a decade of collaborative work with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and national public health partner organizations, PHIT offers networking opportunities as well as interactive learning and skill-building sessions designed for different experience levels.

- Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO)
- National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO)
