Strengthening Local Public Health Through Training & Education

The mission of the Local Public Health Institute (Institute) is to improve public health and preparedness capabilities and the health of the residents of the Commonwealth by creating, implementing, and sustaining workforce development activities for local public health and other public health system partners. Local public health professionals are busier than ever, and their training needs are more complex. In order to make the training accessible statewide, the Institute leverages a variety of training delivery methods, including traditional classroom trainings, asynchronous online modules, live webinar sessions, and blended formats. For a full list of Institute offerings, please go to our Training page.

As part of its training regimen, the LPHI offers Foundations For Local Public Health Practice: Tools Needed to Get the Job Done. This blended course (in person, webinars and self-paced learning) covers more than 60 hours of training. This year’s course ran from April to September. 38 Public Health practitioners from across the Commonwealth participated. Congratulations to our 2016 Graduates!
