What About Workforce? February 2021 Update

by Andrea Guzman, Workforce Development Coordinator

This month, the NHPHA Public Health Mentor Program will finally come together as a whole group again, virtually, after four months of one-on-one meetings. We hope mentor and mentee pairs have enjoyed learning from one another. NHPHA is looking forward to the opportunity to reconnect as a group and get to know each other better. We have an informative and engaging afternoon planned, featuring speaker Kayla Page, Director of Diversity Programs at Southern New Hampshire University. Kayla has been an integral advisor for NHPHA’s equity work. We’ll be discussing intercultural development and working on defining, reflecting, and toward cultural integration. We are also preparing additional monthly meetings for the program so that we can continue to learn and network. 

NHPHA is also proud to share 2020-2021 health equity intern placements with Gather, University of New Hampshire, Dartmouth College, and the Partnership for Public Health. We have successfully placed interns with these organizations through our partnership with the New England Public Health Training Center. The goal of the health equity internship is to improve student ability to address public health services related to the social determinants of health in medically underserved communities These interns will be gaining practical public health experience while working on projects such as program evaluations, state health improvement plans, data analysis, and care innovation for infectious disease.
