Join a Community of Practice

Communities of Practice are a way for anyone interested in public health to collaborate. It's easy to start working with a community, and your level of participation is up to you.

Some Communities of Practice collaborate on, a free, online collaborative space for public health. Joining a community is a simple 2-step process:

  1. Join phConnect by clicking the JOIN button from the home page at Create your profile. Shortly, you will receive an email letting you know that you have joined the phConnect platform.
  2. Click on the COMMUNITIES tab to find a group that interests you; then click the group name to join that community. You will either be joined immediately or you may request membership into a “moderated” community.

If you have difficulty completing this process, please send an email to describing the problem you are having. You should receive a reply within 2 business days.

If you don’t find a community focused on your interest, feel free to create one. You will find useful information about getting started on phConnect, launching a community, and Terms of Use under the HELP tab. We hope you find or create a CoP of interest and value to you!
