Description

They came to public health committed to save lives. They are leaving in the wake of attacks, harassment, and even death threats. More than 180 state and local public health officials have left their jobs in less than a year, depleting and stymying our public health system just when we need it most.

Join the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health for a "We Stand with Public Health" webcast to learn more about the pressure and threats our public health officials face and what people can do to protect them. They will share data about the extent of the problem, several public health officials will share personal stories, and the event will end with a call to action to address these troubling realities.

The webcast will be available at https://www.jhsph.edu/covid-19/news-and-events/events/2021/february-24.html

This important conversation will be moderated by Vice Dean for Public Health Practice and Community Engagement Joshua Sharfstein and will include state and local public health officials from the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials, National Association of County and City Health Officials, and the Big Cities Health Coalition.
