APTR Institutional Member Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science has been awarded $87,300 through the APTR-CDC Cooperative Agreement to develop a new teaching tool titled “Foundations of Population Health Science and Practice – Mini Course for Public Health Professionals.” This training series will contribute to the ongoing professional development of the public health workforce by increasing their foundational knowledge of population health science and the effective design, implementation, and evaluation of population health practice activities.

The Principal Investigator is Kimberly Elliott, PhD, Chair of the Department of Health Services Administration at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science. The CDC 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 #NU360E000008.

Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science is a graduate-level health professions and sciences university in North Chicago, Illinois. The University is made up of five colleges. Dr. Elliott and her team belong to the College of Health Professions at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science. Specifically, she chairs the department of Health Services Administration - within which are two programs: Health Administration and Population Health. The mission of Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science is to serve humanity through the interprofessional education of health and biomedical professionals, and the discovery of knowledge dedicated to improving wellness.
