Welcome to the Region 2 Public Health Training Center (Region 2 PHTC)! The Center is a continuing education and training resource for public health workers primarily in New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Through face-to-face and distance-based learning opportunities, MPH student field placements, and more, the Center strives to strengthen local public health departments to better serve their communities.
Over the past four years, we have specialized in training related to health equity, health disparities, and social determinants of health. Going forward, we are taking new direction from the de Beaumont Foundation’s National Consortium for Public Health Professionals and will be providing training on the 8 Strategic Skills to complement other specialized skill areas.
