The American Journal of Public Health, the official journal of the America Public Health Association, has released a special supplement that focuses on Innovations in Public Health Education (Volume 105, Issue S1). Leaders from several ASPPH-member CEPH-accredited schools and programs of public health contributed to the supplement on ways to reimagine and reinvent education for public health in the 21st century.
