Objectives

    • Increase the visibility of the partnership with librarians and the public health workforce.

Why?

Most LHD professionals do not have formal public health training. Most LHDs are unable to provide support or incentives for current staff to obtain the formal public health training that would increase the quality of the workforce. Most LHDs cannot provide pay increases or other incentives to staff who obtain additional public health training or degrees.Institute of Medicine 2003
