The Network of the National Library of Medicine’s Public Health Collaborative (PHC) grew out of a small, informal working group in 2019. The group’s goal was to expand NNLM programming and outreach to the public health workforce. In 2021, the group evolved into the Public Health Collaborative (PHC), a working group of the NNLM and the NPHCO’s Public Health Coordination Office. Today, the PHC advises NNLM on matters of strategy and policy pertaining to public health engagement and works to improve and expand outreach, activities and training opportunities for the public health workforce.
The PHC has also partnered with a number of public health associations including the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing (NCHEC) to provide CE credit for the public health workforce. Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) credits are available for many of the classes and webinars offered by the NNLM.
Currently plans are underway for offering a number of webinars and classes in the 2022-2023 year.
