Social Media Toolkit for Partners

CDC’s Public Health Associate Program (PHAP), managed by the Center for State, Tribal, Local, State and Territorial Support (CSTLTS), is a competitive, two-year, paid training program. PHAP associates are assigned to public health agencies and nongovernmental organizations in the United States and US territories, and work alongside other professionals across a variety of public health settings. Throughout the two-year training program, associates gain hands-on experience that will serve as a foundation for their public health careers. After completing the program, PHAP graduates are qualified to apply for jobs with public health agencies and organizations.

This social media toolkit is designed for partners, such as CDC programs, state, tribal, local, and territorial health departments, schools of public health, and national organizations, to help spread the word about PHAP and encourage eligible host sites and candidates to apply.
