Social Media Toolkit for Partners

The 2022 application period for PHAP host sites is open from January 3 – February 18, 2022. The 2022 application period for associates is open January 18–25, 2022. CDC’s Public Health Associate Program (PHAP), managed by the Center for State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial Support (CSTLTS), is a competitive, 2-year, paid training program. Associates are assigned to state, tribal, local, and territorial public health agencies and nongovernmental organizations, and work alongside other professionals across various public health settings. Throughout the 2-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.

Help Spread the Word to Potential Associates and Host Sites

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 applicants to apply.
