NEHA, through a funding agreement with the
Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), is
continuing to work with the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention/National Center for Environmental Health (CDC/NCEH) to support
efforts already underway to build capacity and infrastructure of the
overall public health system, and more specifically to support the goals
outlined by the CDC’s National
Strategy to Revitalize Environmental Public Health Services.
To insure increased coordination of
environmental health workforce and leadership development programs and
activities, NEHA has established and convened the Environmental Health
Workforce Development Consortium. Key national organizations and federal
agencies make up the Consortium and meet monthly via teleconference.
