ASPPH and NBPHE staff represented the National Board of Public Health Examiners (NBPHE) and Public Health Reports (PHR) at the PHS Commissioned Officers Foundation for the Advancement of Public Health annual meeting, the USPHS Scientific and Training Symposium May 17 – 19, in Oklahoma City, OK.
Ms. Allison Foster, president, NBPHE, exhibited at the conference and presented on the Certified in Public Health credential in a session entitled “Leadership and Excellence in Public Health Practice” and provided information to attendees on becoming Certified in Public Health (CPH).
As publisher of Public Health Reports (PHR), the official journal of the U.S. Surgeon General and the U.S. Public Health Service, ASPPH provided copies of the journal to attendees and information on publishing opportunities. Also in attendance were several ASPPH members, including George Washington University Milken Institute School of Public Health, University of Massachusetts-Amherst School of Public Health and Health Sciences, University of North Carolina Gillings School of Global Public Health, University of Oklahoma College of Public Health, and the University of South Florida College of Public Health. This event was a valuable opportunity for the public health workforce to share innovation practices to address knowledge gaps needed to create a prevention-orientation society to improve the health and wellness of all.
