What About Workforce? May 2020 Update

by Andrea Guzman, Workforce Development Coordinator

NHPHA began the month by hosting a successful Career Panel Webinar. This webinar was aimed at students and early career professionals thinking about a career in public health and who want to learn more about career options. Thirty-seven participants joined the webinar from New Hampshire and beyond. Our panelists included Catherine Bardier, Vice President of Wellness and Population Health at New London Hospital; Meghan Farrell, Vice President of Community Engagement at New Futures; David LaFlamme, Maternal and Child Health Epidemiologist for the State of New Hampshire; and Gwen Williams, Health and Licensing Officer for the City of Concord. They spoke with participants about their career trajectories and described a day in the life of their specific public health position. The question-and-answer segment provided participants with additional guidance on the various paths one can take in field of public health in pursuit of their ideal position. The webinar was well received and is recorded and available on our websitebhere.

In light of us all working and schooling from home, we are working to transform our student poster session, traditionally held during out annual meeting, to a virtual, online format. Posters will be placed on our website for the New Hampshire public health community to see. They will be viewed by a panel of judges, and the top undergraduate- and graduate-level posters will be recognized. We hope that this format gives students the recognition they deserve for the hard work they have completed during their internships and coursework.

Lastly, the Mentor Program Celebration, which usually takes place in May, will be moved to September. We truly look forward to seeing our mentors and mentees then and celebrating all that we’ve all been through together!
