Foundations of Population Health Science and Practice – Mini Course for Public Health Professionals

The proposed 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.

Health departments and community-based organizations that have public health central to their mission have unique needs, modalities, approaches, regulatory, and public policy contexts under which they operate which inform their population health improvement efforts. Population health trainings/mini courses that specifically address the unique needs and goals of public health are not universally accessible. There is a need for training that provides high yield information that equips the public health workforce with foundational knowledge in population health science and best practices in population health.
