Our nation’s health depends on a highly skilled and dedicated workforce. The Center for Public Health Practice in the College of Public Health at The Ohio State University supports the professional development of the people and the strategic organizational improvement of the agencies protecting and promoting the health of our citizens.

Public health evolves through training and education that responds to the demands of practice, research that advances the profession, and partnerships that harness the power of collective effort. The Center for Public Health Practice helps you keep pace through our expertise in population health, workforce development, strategic planning, public health accreditation, evaluation, facilitation, and much more.
