Various Tracks Offer Educational Opportunities for All
September 01, 2004
Participants can choose one of the following three courses for the three-day session:
Courses will be taught by experts from the State of Alaska and the University of Washington.
"This year's Public Health Training Institute offers courses for more than just state Public Health staff; everyone connected to public health in Alaska can learn something new here to improve or expand their skills and abilities," said Division of Public Health Director Richard Mandsager, M.D.
Participants at the 2003 Institute reported very positive learning experiences from the courses. In a survey conducted three months after the 2003 courses, one participant responded, "This was the best training I've had in a long, long time." Another respondent stated, "I came away with some ideas for cooperative work with the public and private sector." "I've attended the Public Health Institute for the past two years and appreciate the quality and professionalism of the trainings. I hope I will be able to attend these trainings in the future. Thank You," says a third.
Registration fee is $125 plus $15 for each certification requested. No on site registration will be offered.
