- The Region V – Great Lakes Public Health Training Center (GLPHTC) undertook the Inquiry Toward Communities of Practice project to explore ways to improve population health through better dialogue between primary care and public health. Each state representative of the GLPHTC created short videos highlighting best practices and existing integration efforts to help others understand elements of successful integration, recognize challenges, and drive solutions to improve population health. The videos will be launched on the Region V – GLPHTC website in October 2016. Please contact Sophie Naji at firstname.lastname@example.org for information and updates.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in partnership with the Public Health Foundation (PHF), invites distance learning professionals who are responsible for developing online training products to apply to participate in the CDC E-Learning Institute (ELI) Fellowship.
