Strategic Priorities

To achieve our mission of improving health outcomes through a diverse, flexible, and highly trained public health workforce, the Division of Scientific Education and Professional Development (DSEPD) has outlined strategic priorities that guide our direction. These priorities align with the core capabilities in CDC’s Strategic Plan for Advancing Science and Health Equity. They underpin DSEPD’s range of programs and initiatives, providing a foundational framework that will make it possible to build a more robust public health infrastructure.
