AmeriCorps Public Health Program Recording is Released

Last week, FORHP and the Rural Health Information Hub hosted a webinar for interested organizations to learn more about the Public Health AmeriCorps, a new national service program in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that will recruit and train nearly 3,000 AmeriCorps Members to address COVID-19 recovery, health equity, and local public health concerns. The webinar featured an overview of the program by the AmeriCorps Public Health Director and speakers from Idaho State University’s Gem State Public Health AmeriCorps program and the American Heart Association’s HeartCorps program who discussed how they leveraged AmeriCorps funding, and the impact of AmeriCorps volunteers to support program goals. The webinar recording, slides, and transcript are now available on the Rural Health Information website.
