    On December 13–14, 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) convened the Public Health Workforce Summit, Modernizing the Workforce for the Public’s Health: Shifting the Balance. Ninety summit participants represented approximately 40 organizations, including CDC’s centers, institute, and offices, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), public health practice organizations, academic associations, health care disciplines, nonprofit associations, and foundations. The summit convened partners as a call to action to: strategize and prioritize the crucial actions needed for strengthening the workforce, and; develop components of a coordinated public health workforce strategic framework that leverages contributions from multiple partners. In spring 2011, CDC established the Public Health Workforce Development Initiative (PHWDI) (http://www.cdc.gov/osels/sepdpo/strategic-workforce-activities.html). As one component of that initiative, the summit was convened to engage partners in addressing the changes occurring in public health, the associated effects on the workforce, and subsequent effects on the population’s health. PHWDI’s efforts are intended to strengthen the public health workforce by improving quality, availability, and accessibility of training and workforce development activities through such approaches as working within educational and employment systems.
