Evaluation of the Public Health Prevention Service

In 1997 the Epidemiology Program Office established the Public Health Prevention Service (PHPS), a new three-year training program, designed to improve the Nation's public health practice by preparing entry-level public health professionals to conduct prevention programs. This evaluation project will establish the foundation for a monitoring and evaluation system designed to provide feedback to the PHPS program for continuous improvement.
