Director's Message

August 23, 2013

Dear Clients and Friends of the Center for Public Health Practice:

The Center for Public Health Practice at The Ohio State University College of Public Health continues to provide and engage in workforce training, consultation services, and practice-based research. I want to thank those who have worked with us throughout the years as clients and/or as collaborating partners.

The Center remains resilient after experiencing the impacts of reduced/eliminated CDC funding in 2010 and the most recent cut by HRSA to year 4 and year 5 budgets for all Public Health Training Centers throughout the country. With these reductions in federal funding there has been an increase in the need for the Center to operate in a more streamlined capacity, including fee increases for select trainings and services.

We are smaller, but remain strong and responsive to identified needs from among the workforce and various agencies throughout Ohio and beyond. We look forward to continuing our relationship with you and we continue to serve with much passion and enthusiasm.
