Today’s public health professionals must be able to strategically consider research results, political interests, and community requests when leading program and policy work. The evidence-based public health framework is an effective model for this type of decision-making.

The Northwest Public Health Training Center at NWCPHP and Rocky Mountain Public Health Training Center invite public health professionals to learn more about this framework by registering for the Evidence-Based Public Health Summer Training Series. This unique online training will cover core concepts, such as defining public health issues, conducting community assessments, prioritizing options, and evaluating program and policy impacts.

Participants have the option to complete the material in one of two ways:

  • Self-study which allows participants to take the eight pre-recorded sessions, quizzes, and reflection questions at their own pace. Please note, space in this format is limited to the first 150 people.
  • Blended learning which allows participants to interact with other professionals and faculty for weekly, live learning sessions and also access eight pre-recorded sessions at their own pace. Please note, space in this format is limited to the first 20 people. Participants must also provide a support letter from their supervisor.

Both options launch with a joint, live session which will provide an overview of training material. The course work is the same for both formats and includes a common example which emphasizes how this material can be applied to many public health issues.
