Besides simply filling a growing demand, the online MPH Leadership and Public Health Practice degree was designed to meet other needs as well.
- Evidence suggests that many public health workers in Colorado have no formal public health training
- Available public health education resources are not meeting the demand in both rural and urban areas for existing public health professions
- There is a strong need to keep up with the shift in public health interventions from an individual behavior focus to a population focus
