Share Your Feedback on the Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals

At the upcoming Council on Linkages Between Academia and Public Health Practice (Council on Linkages) meeting on March 27th, the Council on Linkages will be voting on whether to begin the process of revising the Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals (Core Competencies). When the Core Competencies were first developed, the Council on Linkages committed to revisiting them every three years to consider whether revisions are necessary to keep pace with changes in the field of public health. In making this decision, the Council on Linkages is seeking input from the public health community. Visit the blog post, Shape the Future of the Public Health Workforce with Your Comments on the Core Competencies, to hear from colleagues and share your thoughts. Comments may also be sent to Kathleen Amos at kamos@phf.org.
