The Health Education Committee serves as:

  • A forum for the exchange of information.
  • An opportunity to educate the public health workforce and other health professionals by increasing the competency, skills and performance as they relate to the core public health essential services.
  • A networking opportunity for public health professionals that are employed in a variety of settings including: local/state health departments, non-profit and not-for-profit organizations, community based organizations, clinical practice, academia and other healthcare settings.
