2012 Public Health Summer Institute

Tennessee has a new opportunity to enhance the training of our public health workforce! A new HRSA grant has been awarded to a consortium of universities and public health agencies to develop a Public Health Training Center, one of only 32 nationwide.  East Tennessee State University’s School of Public Health spearheads this grant, and the University of Memphis' School of Public Health is a collaborating agency.  Other collaborating agencies include the Tennessee Department of Health; The Tennessee Public Health Association; the National Association of City and County Health Officers (NACCHO); Meharry Medical College’s MPH Program; and University of Tennessee’s Department of Public health.

The purpose of the Tennessee Public Health Training Center, named Tennessee LIFEPATH Long-Distance Internet Facilitated Educational Program for Applied Training in Health), is to provide a home for the collaborative partnership between Tennessee‘s academic public health training providers and the state‘s public health workforce, and to provide comprehensive competency-based training for that workforce. The Center is focused on the identification of workforce training needs; the provision of both academic and non-academic training to address these needs, and the evaluation of the training and outcomes. The long-term goal of Tennessee LIFEPATH is to strengthen the technical, scientific, managerial and leadership competence of Tennessee’s public health workforce.
