Dr. Gen Meredith | Citizen Public Health Leader Training | MLJ Interview
New York Residents can build on lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic by enrolling in the new Citizen Public Health Leader Training Program developed by Cornell University in partnership with New York State.
The online course offered through eCornell, will be opened to individuals from across New York State, providing eight hours of self-paced, interactive instruction on topics including COVID-19, structural inequities that influence U.S. health and climate change. This is complemented by optional participation in talks on current public health topics.
Announced in January by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, the program’s goal is to develop a network of at least 100,000 citizen public health leaders who can play a role in supporting preparedness and health in neighborhoods across the state.
Dr. Gen Meredith, the Associate Director of the Master of Public Health program at Cornell University joined us to talk about the Citizen Public Health Leader Training Program.
The training is free, and individuals are encouraged to enroll in the program now, the next session will begin on Tuesday, April 27th.
