AUCD Announces the Including People with Disabilities: Public Health Workforce Competencies

See the full announcement here.

The Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD) would like to announce the release of the "Including People with Disabilities: Public Health Workforce Competencies."

The Competencies outline recent advances in knowledge and practice skills that public health professionals need to include people with disabilities in the core public health functions – Assessment, Policy Development and Assurance. The Competencies have been developed by a national committee comprised of disability and public health experts.

This project was funded by the National Center for Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD), Office of the Director, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (ODCDC), and the Office for State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial Support (OT), Award# 5U38OT000140-03.
