A Population Health Workforce to Meet 21st Century Challenges and Opportunities

Workshop //



Feb 28 2022, 11:00 AM - 4:30 PM EST


This virtual event hosted by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will explore issues related to the multi-sector workforce for population health improvement. Presentations and discussions aim to answer the following questions:

  • Who are the workers (e.g. workers in public health, in community-facing health care roles, in the social sector)?
  • What education, training, and competencies do they need, especially considering current challenges and opportunities?
  • How can the workforce be strengthened and supported?
  • How best to address attrition, pay, and related matters?
  • How best to use the resources being made available in the wake of the pandemic?
  • These topics will be discussed in the context of the need to promote equity (including in the workforce pipeline) and ensure readiness to respond to evolving opportunities (e.g. pandemic-related funding) and challenges (e.g. health implications of climate change).
