The Public Health Learning Network Introduces a New Era of Public Health Training

WASHINGTON, DC, May 13, 2016 — To ensure the nation’s 500,000 public health professionals can respond rapidly to critical and ever-evolving needs, the National Coordinating Center for Public Health Training (NCCPHT) has partnered with the Region 2 Public Health Training Center along with the nation’s nine additional Regional Public Health Training Centers (RPHTCs) and 40 local performance sites (LPS) to develop a unified, national network—the Public Health Learning Network (PHLN).

Funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the PHLN is the nation’s most comprehensive system of public health educators, experts, and thought leaders. The growing network aims to:

  • Advance public health practice by enabling the sharing of best practices among Public Health Training Centers across the U.S.
  • Improve population health in the United States through skills-based training and ongoing research in communities across the United States, Puerto Rico, S. Virgin Islands, and U.S. territories.
  • Offer high quality, free, adaptable, and easy-to-access training tools available online and in-person.

 

What is distinct about the PHLN is its long-standing relationship with learners and partner organizations within communities, coupled with a national presence that offers cohesive and rigorous development and delivery of education and knowledge sharing across the country. For more information, visit nnphi.org/phln.
