Make a Difference, Grow our Workforce, Connect with Youth
In 2007, research showed a new kind of threat to the public’s health: a growing shortage of public health workers. Contributing factors included our aging workforce and population, not enough training programs and poor health habits and health literacy among our general population.
CPHA responded with a long-term goal: Prepare youth and undergraduates as future public health advocates, leaders and health literate citizens with the help of CPHA members. We formed a Mentoring Committee, called Mentors on Request (MOR) and armed them with activities and tools to engage youth and young adults in public health, from the classroom to the community. Since 2007 the MOR has grown from 7 organizational members to 45.
We outlined a three-pronged plan to grow a knowledgeable and diverse public health workforce, as well as healthier future generation.
