ASTHO, in collaboration with various public health thought leaders and subject-matter experts, present an interactive virtual learning series for public health professionals. Our ASTHOConnects webinar series provides the latest and most relevant information on a broad range of emerging trends and issues affecting state and territorial public health. These free, zoom-based events are designed to provide the skills, knowledge, tools, and collaborations needed to formulate sound public health policy and ensure excellence in state-based public health practice.

e-Learning Center

The ASTHO e-Learning Center houses on-demand professional development offerings, including event and meeting recordings, and microlearnings.

Microlearnings are bite-sized teaching sprints with just the right amount of information to help a learner achieve a specific goal. These web-based, self-paced bursts of content are designed for engagement and fast learning while still supporting long-term retention. They are the perfect way to communicate complex information—from onboarding staff, to introducing new concepts, and more.

Learning Communities

Learning communities are cohort-based communities that seek to advance an area of public health practice. These communities create unique opportunities to shed light on job-specific challenges and work towards actionable improvements. We collaborate with experts to create purposeful groupings across state health agencies, territorial health agencies, and multi-sectoral partners to drive public health innovation.
