PUBLIC HEALTH TOURS: 2015
The CPH Foundation has led nearly 200 individuals on tours of public health and prevention institutions. Members of Congress, their staff, members of the media, and prominent business leaders have all benefited from these preventive health policy focused efforts.
Due to the fall midterm elections, the Ebola ramp-up of public health leaders, our pending Unsung Heroes event, and the changes expected in both chambers of Congress, our next educational tours will be planned after the new year. Our goal is to engage newly-minted health committee members in a revised set of tour and Hill briefings.
