What About Workforce? November 2020 Update

by Andrea Guzman, Workforce Development Coordinator

Mentor Program Kick-Off

The third cohort of the NHPHA Public Health Mentor Program had its kick-off event on October 7! There were some big changes to the kick-off this year; namely, while we had the largest group we’ve ever had, we also could not meet in person due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, this meant that we were able to connect with our speaker, Magda Peck, ScD, who joined us virtually from California. She is a seasoned strategic leader in public health and specifically focuses on mentoring public health professionals and leading public health programs. Magda’s presentation was lauded by the group for how she connected mentoring expectations, networking, relationships, and boundaries through a professional public health lense. Mentor pairs were finally able to meet one another and set goals for the year. NHPHA is working on various learning opportunities and networking activities for this cohort going forward and are excited to get to know everyone better!

Last Chance! Lobbying and Advocacy Training

We will be virtually holding our fourth annual training, Lobbying and Advocacy: A Primer for New Hampshire Non-Profit Advocates, on November 4, 2020 from 9 to 11:15 a.m. This training explains legal resources and lobbying restrictions for public health nonprofits and officials, and examines the differences between advocacy, direct lobbying, and grassroots lobbying. We are bringing back our popular speakers, Kate Frey and Jess Wojenski from New Futures and Kerri McGowan Lowery, JD, MPH, from the University of Maryland School of Law. Register here! Scholarships are available by contacting Andrea Guzman at [email protected].
