Innovative Workforce Solutions - Lessons learned from Public Health AmeriCorps

Learn about best practices in recruiting, training and nurturing early-career public health professionals from Public Health AmeriCorps, an innovative partnership between AmeriCorps and the CDC to grow the next generation of diverse public health leaders.
Public health is facing a workforce crisis. The field needs 80,000 more public health workers to meet our country’s needs, and young professionals are leaving the field in record numbers.

By focusing on member development and looking beyond the traditional profile of a public health professional, Public Health AmeriCorps has been working to reverse these trends. In less than two years of active programming, they have recruited over 3,500 members to join the field and provided training and career support to help members find their best path toward a career in public health after service.

This webinar will highlight ways that local health departments and other public health organizations can leverage the lessons learned from Public Health AmeriCorps to grow local talent, build pathways for community members to join the field of public health and become critical trusted messengers for their community.
