ASPPH, with support from CDC through a cooperative agreement, supported 15 fellows in a week long program to prepare for the CPH exam. 14 fellows from the ASPPH/CDC Public Health and ASPPH/CDC Allan Rosenfield Global Health programs, and an Association for Prevention Teaching and Research (APTR)/CDC fellow, participated in study sessions with expert faculty from CEPH accredited, ASPPH member-schools and focused on one of the five core-areas of public health, including cross-cutting areas and cumulated with a proctored CPH exam.

The training was held at Emory University Rollins School of Public Health. Dr. James Curran, dean of Emory, welcomed the fellows to the training seminar and spoke with them about their career development and the current state of public health. ASPPH would like to thank Emory for hosting the training sessions, and Dr. LaVonne Ortega, lead for Academic Partnerships to Improve Health (APIH), CSELS, CDC for supporting the fellows and promoting their continued professional development.
The CPH credential is the only credential in public health that demonstrates mastery of contemporary public health sciences and demonstrates leadership and professionalism. For more information on the CPH exam, please visit https://www.nbphe.org/.
