Because the public health community has worked to advance health equity for a long time, we are able to benefit from existing research and knowledge — and contribute our own. Use the resources we’ve gathered and let us know about others you’ve created or found that will be useful to advance our vision and mission.

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.
