The New England Public Health Training Center (NEPHTC) is a partnership among schools and programs of public health and public health agencies. It works to strengthen the technical, scientific, managerial, and leadership competencies of the current and future public health workforce in New England to ensure that the region has the capacity to deliver high quality essential public health services.
NEPHTC serves over 8,000 frontline and middle management staff in state and local public health agencies. Additionally, it also supports thousands of community health workers across the region who play important roles in connecting low-income, racial, or ethnic minority residents to clinical and preventive services.
