Addressing the need for a robust public health workforce

"Public health professionals make up a cornerstone of our healthcare system, and they are critical for ensuring the well-being and success of our communities—from working on the frontlines to keep people safe from infectious diseases to advocating for policies and practices that promote community health and quality of life.

Having served as a nurse, an epidemic intelligence officer, a healthcare executive, and now as lieutenant governor, I know firsthand the value of a Master of Public Health. My public health training not only provided me with a deep understanding of how our health systems work and the social factors that impact our health, but also the lifelong skills needed to be a leader and a change-maker in any field."

—Sara Rodriguez, M.S.N, M.P.H., RN, Lieutenant Governor, State of Wisconsin
