This year's course is designed to provide Public Health Professionals an opportunity to keep abreast of the most current public health topics and services through
its 2019 theme, ‘Readiness, Relevance and Rigor’.  Now modeled across the capabilities and functions of the 10 Essential Public Health Services, the DOD’s public health assets will synchronize efforts in order to maintain continuity in the delivery of its services.  To adapt to current changes in the Public Health Enterprise, its overnance, and the ever changing operational landscape, the Army Public Health Course also serves as a platform to synergize strategic, operational and tactical efforts.  Here, the Army’s public health framework will be further defined and real-time use of its strategies implemented.

The target audience for this course includes Public Health officers, enlisted, and DOD civilians.  Content includes workshops, breakout sessions and a plenary, all based on topics in public health.  It is a 40 hour ATRRS course with Course Code 2608-A0102 and Military career Development Course Code of CWS.
