About the Initiative
The Johns Hopkins University COVID-19 Training Initiative draws on resources at the Bloomberg School of Public Health and Johns Hopkins University to provide COVID-19 training support for public health workers across the US.
Training support includes the development of free online courses and tools, tailored training for public health departments in the US, and additional training for the Baltimore Health Corps. The COVID-19 Training Initiative is supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies.
The COVID-19 Training Initiative is an initiative of the Office of Public Health Practice and Training, which is led by Assistant Dean for Public Health Practice Dr. Beth Resnick and Vice Dean for Public Health Practice and Community Engagement Dr. Joshua Sharfstein.
