Workforce Development Program


NEHA, through a funding agreement with the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), is continuing to work with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/National Center for Environmental Health (CDC/NCEH) to support efforts already underway to build capacity and infrastructure of the overall public health system, and more specifically to support the goals outlined by the CDC’s National Strategy to Revitalize Environmental Public Health Services.

To insure increased coordination of environmental health workforce and leadership development programs and activities, NEHA has established and convened the Environmental Health Workforce Development Consortium. Key national organizations and federal agencies make up the Consortium and meet monthly via teleconference.

NEHA’s current Workforce Development Program objectives include:

  • Regularly convening the Environmental Health Workforce Development Consortium.

  • Identifying and sharing environmental health professional recruitment and retention models and practices within local and state agencies.

  • Providing web-based workforce development resources.

If you would like more information about this program or have comments or questions, please contact Elizabeth Landeen, Assistant Manager, Research & Development, 860.351.5099.
