New Assessment Highlights Breadth and Depth of Looming Public Health Workforce Crisis
Date:2/25/2008

Expert Panel to Discuss Significant Health and Safety Impacts, What Needs

to Be Done

WASHINGTON, Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ --

WHAT: The Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH) recently

completed an assessment of the public health workforce shortage --

the first of its kind -- and is hosting a briefing to discuss its

findings and recommended actions.

WHY: The U.S. faces a public health workforce crisis, and the current

public health workforce is inadequate to meet the health needs of

the U.S. and global population. Without enough public health

workers protecting us where we live, work and play, we are all

vulnerable to serious health risks. Public health doctors and

nurses, epidemiologists, and health care educators + administrators

work to protect us from communicable diseases, prevent

environmental hazards and chronic diseases, and help communities

prepare for disasters. Leading experts agree we don't have enough

trained public health workers today and will have even less

tomorrow if we don't act soon.

WHEN: February 27, 2008 1:00 - 2:00 PM

WHERE: The United States Capitol Room S-120
