Center for Public Health Practice

Dornsife School of Public Health Center for Public Health Practice 

The Center for Public Health Practice (CPHP) is part of the Drexel University Dornsife School of Public Health. The goal of the Center is to translate knowledge into practice by creating a bridge between academia and the public health workforce. This both assists faculty in the dissemination of their work and responds to the needs of the public health community.

The CPHP brings the resources of the school to public health practitioners and engages public health organizations, healthcare organizations, and academia in meaningful and sustained partnership to address health in cities and improve the health of our communities. CPHP achieves this through training and technical assistance, conducting needs assessments, and preparing for accreditation.  Find out more about our recent activities.

The CPHP is the home of the federally funded Mid-Atlantic Regional Public Health Training Center, a collaborative project with the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health to increase the technical skills of the public health and health care workforce.  To learn more or register for MAR-PHTC events, click here.
