ASPH Launches "Pathways to Public Health" Web Site, Hosts "Visit Day" at APHA Annual Convention Exhibition Hall

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. is facing a major public health workforce crisis - and the health risks associated with the shortage will affect us all if action is not taken to recruit more individuals into public health professions. Earlier this year, the Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH) completed an assessment of the crisis - the first of its kind - and found that nearly 250,000 more public health workers will be needed than will be available by 2020.

To address this glaring need, ASPH, with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, today announced the launch of a new and improved version of the "Pathways to Public Health" web site at http://www.pathwaystopublichealth.org. "Pathways to Public Health" has been developed to help young people learn more about public health education and public health careers. The website, which will be continually updated with new resources and information, features a wide range of resources designed to educate and inform young people about the wide variety of public health careers and their contributions to protecting the health of us all. The site updates include the ability to post material on social networking pages, and interactive and multimedia features including polls and videos.

The project was guided by a taskforce that includes representatives from the American School Counselors Association, Girl Scouts of the USA, the National Association of County and City Health Officials, the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Public Health Association, the Georgia Intern-Fellowships for Teachers, the Emory Center for Science Education, as well as representatives from public health schools and programs.
