ISDS is an approved provider of Certified in Public Health (CPH) Recertification credits. The CPH credential was established by the National Board of Public Health Examiners (NBPHE) in an effort to give recognition to public health practitioners who have mastered core competencies of public health and who continue their education to remain at the forefront of public health practice. To become CPH certified, a graduate from a CEPH-accredited school or program of public health must pass the entry CPH Exam then go through a bi-annual recertification process to maintain the credential. Every two years, CPH professionals must earn 50 CPH credits. These credits may be earned through a variety of activities such as attending public health professional events, taking college or university courses, reading peer-reviewed literature, attending online webinars, and more.
ISDS is offering CPH Recertification credits for 2013 Pre-Conference Workshops and Conference participation. To take advantage of this opportunity, please register for a 2013 Pre-Conference Workshop and/or the Conference, participate in New Orleans in December, and then indicate that you would like to receive CPH recertification credits on the evaluation following the activity.
