The 2021 Army Public Health Course will be held on a virtual platform, using a new version Microsoft Teams, from 7 – 13 August 2021. 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 2021 theme, 'Forging a More Resilient Future with Public Health’.
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 governance, 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.
Course content includes workshops, breakout sessions and a plenary. It is an ATRRS course with Course Code 2608-A0102. Recorded classroom time and a complete DA 3838 is a requisite for ATRRS credit.
