NNPHI has launched the Public Health Learning Navigator: a curated, guided, and individualized experience to help public health learners navigate to high-quality training, tools, and resources they need to support community and population health. This tool helps ensure learners have access to trainings that have been reviewed for quality, relevancy, and accessibility. Thanks to exceptional training producers and reviewers, the site now features 11 quality trainings selected after screening and reviewing over 300 online trainings.
