APTR is pleased to announce the grantee of a CDC Workforce Improvement Project to develop a new series of teaching tools, titled “Case Studies and Supporting Content in Communication, Leadership, and Problem-solving for Population Health.” The case studies will build skills in multi-disciplinary collaboration and integration, effective communication, leadership, and problem-solving in the emerging population health context. The opportunity was made possible through the APTR-CDC Cooperative Agreement.

The Principal Investigator is Dr. Linelle M. Blais. She serves as the Executive Director of Emory Centers, and is an Associate Professor, Behavioral Science and Health Education, and Associate Director of the Executive MPH Program, Prevention Science Track. The  CDC Population Health Workforce Branch (PHWB), Division of Scientific Education and Professional Development (DSEPD), Center for Surveillance, Epidemiology and Laboratory Services (CSELS), will work on this project in collaboration with APTR. 

Workforce Improvement Projects provide a way for CDC to partner with academia on non-research, applied public health activities that better prepare health professionals and strengthen public health workforce capacity. These public health practice projects are developed and funded by programs in CDC Centers, Institutes, and Offices and are announced through the APTR-CDC Cooperative Agreement #6 NU360E000008-02-02.

Emory Centers is located within the Behavioral Sciences and Health Education Department of the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. Emory Centers' mission is to create healthier communities by building a competent and mobilized public health workforce nationwide. Its services span across all public health issues, risk factors, and professional competencies.
