Public Health Practice


The Mountain West Preparedness and Emergency Response Learning Center (MWPERLC) has been providing public health preparedness training, exercise support, and technical assistance to the public health workforce in the inter-mountain west region for the past 10 years. Throughout those years, we have established a strong network of public health system partners in, but not limited to, the health care delivery system, homeland security and public safety, emergency management, employers and businesses, media, academia, and community groups. In our continuous effort to expand our workforce development activities, the MWPERLC is moving towards a national agenda to enhance the impact of the translation and dissemination of training outcomes and products to improve public health practice and enhance health security.
