José Navarro was excited for his new career after landing a job in the poultry industry. After five years on the job, 37 year-old Navarro began coughing up blood. He died soon after when his lungs and kidneys failed. His death triggered a federal investigation raising questions about the health risks associated with the use of toxic chemicals in poultry plants.
Millions of workers are exposed to chemicals everyday on the job. All workers have the right to know about the chemicals they work with and community health workers can be an important source of information and support for workers. This workshop will teach community health workers how to explain what happens when someone is exposed to chemicals and how workers can best protect themselves
- Recognize how workers become exposed to chemicals and illnesses
- Describe basic safety practices when working around chemicals
- Understand the role of community health workers in identifying and preventing work related illnesses and hazards

The nation’s largest public health organizations are well known for making careers in public health more accessible by offering scholarships, fellowships, and grants that defray the cost of earning an undergraduate or graduate degree in public health:
- US Department of Health and Human Services – Health Resources and Services Administration
- American Public Health Association
What is not as well known is that there are literally dozens of scholarships available to students of public health available through state schools, private universities, professional associations, and private donors.
Not only do these organizations offer a full range of scholarship programs – from full tuition to a little extra cash – these scholarships are also less competitive than more widely known programs available at the national level. The catch is that it can be a challenge finding a less competitive program that you’re eligible for.
PublicHealthCareerEDU.org has made it a little easier for you to find the funding you need to earn a degree in public health. We’ve put together a list of our favorite scholarship programs available to undergrads and graduate students – and to make it even easier to find a scholarship that you’re eligible for, we’ve organized the list by state.
One of the most crucial components of any public health campaign is communicating time-sensitive information to people in areas affected by public health threats. Since most public health concerns are local or regional in nature, the responsibility for getting information out to the public in a timely manner falls to state and municipal health departments.
From consumer product recalls and food safety warnings, to the latest information on infectious disease outbreaks and vaccinations, state and local health department websites serve as the best resources available for getting the information you need to keep you and your family out of harm’s way.
Whether you’re a healthcare professional looking to isolate the source of a food borne illness or a concerned parent looking to keep your child’s vaccinations current, your state and local health departments will provide you with the latest information on how to keep your family and your community healthy and safe.

This blog post from the North Carolina Medical Board discusses issues around physician burnout. The blog states: "Burnout among physicians has reached epidemic proportions since it was first described among human services workers in the 1970s. When physicians experience overload, loss of control (autonomy) and a lack of reward (perceived or real) for their contributions, their risk for emotional exhaustion, otherwise known as the burnout syndrome, is astronomical. When physicians begin the downward spiral into burnout, they no longer contribute with their leadership and motivational energy. Instead, they become needy and unintentionally sap energy away from the group. Worse, this syndrome is highly contagious and can systematically infect a whole practice or clinic by reducing meaningful contact among its individual members."
