This includes maintaining and strengthening ties to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; State, County, and local Health Departments; the private sector; and community-based organizations that have a public health-related mission in service to generating local, domestic, and global partnerships that support teaching, research and student placements in the field. The ADPHP will also oversee core academic functions that may include the Applied Practice Experience, continuing professional education, school-wide accreditation and the Executive MPH program (the graduate distance education program). The ADPHP also would work collaboratively with the Office of Admissions and Student Services to support the Rollins Earn and Learn (REAL) Program.
