We collaborate to ensure the public health workforce has the skills, resources, and support it needs to address the social determinants of health and achieve health equity.

Join Us

Help shape the future of the public health workforce by getting involved with the National Consortium. We’re seeking the input of government public health leaders, training providers, federal agencies, policymakers, foundations, and other public health advocates.

Join Us

I joined the National Consortium because I am supportive of strengthening our nation's public health workforce. COVID-19 has taken a severe toll on our public health workforce, so it's even more important than ever that we come together on this important topic.

Kaye Bender, American Public Health Association

To address workforce issues, we need to work together. The National Consortium is serving to bring together representatives from a range of organizations and agencies committed to addressing the needs of the public health workforce.

Rita Kelliher, Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health

I hope the National Consortium will mobilize practitioners and policy makers to support and invest in workforce development across staff/levels in governmental public health agencies.

Monica Valdes Lupi, Kresge Foundation
