Background

In the spring of 2012 NWCPHP conducted key informant interviews with individuals within the Network for Public Health Law and is using the insight gained to build the following practical tools and services for public health professionals and their attorneys:

  • Consultation and coaching for public health law and policy trainers.
  • Online public health law training database.
  • Three online training modules on priority public health law and policy topics.
  • Toolkits and guidelines for developing and delivering public health law trainings.

The design of this toolkit was updated in 2014 to reflect NWCPHP's new branding.
