Giving every person a fair chance to be healthy and assuring optimal health for all is part of every public health agency’s role.

Public health agencies are committed to creating the conditions for every member of their community to thrive in the places that we live, work, and play. Working with communities, local organizations, corporations and government agencies, public health addresses the root causes of unequal health outcomes between different groups of people. You can help create those changes in your community through your work in public health.

In order to achieve health equity, health departments must ensure that their workforce reflects the communities they serve.

The public health workforce is a diverse array of individuals all working together to promote health and prevent illness. Public health teams are composed of professionals from multiple occupational backgrounds, professional training, and lived experience. If you are looking to join a team of diverse professionals, public health is definitely for you.
