Partnerships are the key component in achieving our mission of promoting excellence in public health.

We work closely with state and local governments, professional associations, academic institutions, and national alliances to deliver quality training, generate practice-based research, and improve prevention systems that advance health equity. Our partnerships help ensure learning resources reach the region’s rural and frontier areas and promote collaboration for training and workforce development activities.
