The New England Public Health Training Center (NEPHTC) develops trainings and provides services that build public health workforce competency.
NEPHTC is one of ten Regional Public Health Training Centers (PHTCs) funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Together the ten PHTCS are part of the Public Health Learning Network (PHLN), led by the National Network of Public Health Institutes.
The Public Health Learning Network (PHLN) is the nation’s most comprehensive system of public health educators, experts, and thought leaders. PHLN aims to advance public health practice and improve population health in the United States. Our growing network of ten university-based regional public health training centers and 39 affiliate training centers (or “local performance sites”) focuses on skills-based training in communities across the United States, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and U.S. territories.
The work of the NEPHTC is guided by members of an Advisory Committee and Executive Committee who work to forge a regional point of view and plan strategically to meet common training needs.
