Public Health 3.0 / National Public Health Accreditation Series

A three-part webinar series to assist frontline public health staff work towards achieving Public Health 3.0 and national public health accreditation.

Public health workforce development efforts have long been focused on traditional, disjointed training solutions heavily loaded toward discipline-based content and outmoded approaches. Innovation and multi-sectoral partnerships are needed to equip the public health workforce, particularly those in governmental agencies, with strategic skills to address the upstream social, economic, and community-based factors that impact health and well-being.

Part 1

Introduction to Public Health 3.0 & National Accreditation

Part 1 of the webinar series will provide an overview of the movement towards Public Health 3.0,  the criteria and processes of national accreditation, and how these concepts fit together. 

While it is preferable to register for and participate in all three sessions, participants do not need to complete all three in order to receive CE for a given webinar.


Public health professionals in all settings, including governmental public health, non-profits, health systems, etc. as well as across disciplines, whether health education, nursing, environmental health, leadership, etc.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe Public Health 3.0 and national accreditation
  • Explain how strategic partnerships can enhance national accreditation and connect to Public Health 3.0
  • Recognize the added value of incorporating a systems thinking approach into public health accreditation
