If you are looking for a great background resource and introduction to how Connecticut does public health, check out: Orientation to Connecticut's Public Health System Course #1056669 on www.train.org.

This Five Part Web-Based Tutorial was developed to familiarize new staff of public health agencies, members of boards of health, public health system partners and others with Connecticut’s public health system. The content is designed for those with and without formal public health training. The course begins with key concepts in public health including the ten essential services followed by a general overview of public health law and authorities. Learners are then introduced to Connecticut’s statutory framework for public health, state and local level public health responsibilities and major job roles of those working in public health. The course can be taken at your own pace, in a single or multiple sittings. It may take 2.5 to 3 hours to complete and a certificate of completion will be provided at the end after passing the final learning assessment.
