Full course description

PLEASE NOTE: No CE or certificate are available in this free version of the course.

This panel is the first in a two-part series on strategies for improved management in public health. During this recorded webinar, panelists addressed challenges faced by new managers in supervising staff during the COVID-19 pandemic (e.g., remote supervision). Panelists discussed ways of creating professional development opportunities and mentorship plans for and with their employees. Participants will also learn strategies to treat staff with a focus on the health and wellbeing of the whole individual, not solely the employee that comes to work.

This training was originally presented on May 2, 2022.


This training is intended for relatively new mid-level managers, particularly those in governmental public health.
