NEPTHC is pleased to share that we are part of a constant collaboration with nine other Public Health Training Centers (PHTCs) in the nine HHS regions. We are far more than a small program working with partners in New England! The thinking of our funders and the needs of the workforce have changed to require us to work as a network. As such, though we operate out of separate university-based Schools of Public Health, we have national activity, training, and technical assistance to share.
