A $4.7 million cooperative agreement from the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has led to the creation of the Consortium for Workforce Research in Public Health (CWORPH).
CWORPH is a unique collaboration that will allow six universities — led by the University of Minnesota — to conduct robust research, evaluation and analysis regarding what drives public health workforce turnover, effective strategies for recruitment and retention, and how to fill workforce gaps.
The other partner universities include Johns Hopkins University, Columbia University, Indiana University, University of Washington and East Tennessee State University.
Driven by the understanding that it should be the public health community who should guide the researchers in determining where the needs are, CWORPH determined that it would identify a partner to advise and help set an agenda relevant to the field — with practice and equity at the forefront.
We are excited to share that the National Consortium for Public Health Workforce Development is CWORPH’s advisory body.
