We want to strengthen the local, regional and state workforce, enhance organizational capacity and meet community needs in these disciplines.

  1. Set up an infrastructure, create processes, and obtain necessary resources to support the development of cutting-edge professional public health, nutrition and social work education programs that strengthen local, regional and state workforce, organizations and public agencies.
  2. Assess and monitor the needs of public health, nutrition and social workers and provide workforce development solutions to enhance the nutrition, public health and social welfare system in Florida.
  3. Develop community partnerships with public health, nutrition and social work corporations, non-profit organizations and public agencies to collaboratively address local, regional and state educational and training needs, ensuring our workforce is prepared to respond to health issues and emergencies and to promote the health of Florida residents.
