The New Hampshire PHTC is a resource for members of the current and future public health workforce of the state. A federally funded program, the NH PHTC complements the work of other valuable public health training resources to support of New Hampshire’s public health infrastructure. The NH PHTC operates under the umbrella of the NH Area Health Education Center (NH AHEC).
The NH PHTC offers workshops, conferences and other educational events that address the needs and interests of public health workers throughout New Hampshire.
Programs are typically developed in collaboration with individuals or groups that offer public health services, and are offered at times and locations most convenient to participants. Topics have included oral health, obesity, chronic disease management, informatics, emergency preparedness, cultural competency, and more. In 2011, over three thousand contact hours of education were provided, and over twelve hundred individuals reached.
Continuing education credit is available.
Stipends for Students
Students in the Masters of Public Health programs at the University of New Hampshire (UNH) and The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice (TDI) can receive stipends for the field experience portion of their training. In turn, they provide a tangible product that adds to our understanding about public health in the state.
