Featuring presentations from public health leaders, educators, and the wider public health community.

Academic public health has been growing substantially over the past two decades, and, commensurately, teaching in academic public health has been growing at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Coincident with this growth, established graduate schools and programs of public health are redesigning curricula to meet the changing needs of incoming students and to ensure that graduates have the knowledge, skills, and attributes to meet the needs of a changing workforce. This symposium aims to turn our lens on the state of teaching in public health, bringing together a state-of-the-field collection of presentations that can serve as a touchstone for the rapid evolution of this field. The symposium will summarize the evolution of public health teaching over time; discuss challenges faced by public health teaching; address the principles and practice of state-of-the-science teaching of public health at each level of education; spotlight innovations in public health education; and look to the future, anticipating where trends in public health education are heading.


Doors open at 8 a.m.
