Full course description
A two-part series in which panel discussions will help explore succession planning and mentoring staff in public health.
Retirement, workforce turnover, and unforeseeable public health emergencies can all threaten an organization's performance. Public health practitioners across all levels must integrate professional development processes into both their short- and long- term planning. By investing in organizational development opportunities now, public health organizations will be better prepared for an uncertain future.
