Workforce Development in public health is a way to improve health outcomes in a community by enhancing the training, skills and performance of its public health workers. Through funding from the American Public Health Association and collaborative partners of MPHA, including the Missouri Department of Senior Services (MDHSS), Missouri Institute for Community Health (MICH), and the Missouri Association of Local Public Health Agencies (MoALPHA) along with our academic partners, MPHA has put together this online resource page to provide local public health agencies with the resources and tools needed to achieve an efficient and effective public health system.
