In order to keep the I AM PUBLIC HEALTH web app up-to-the-minute, ASPH is seeking new profile submissions. The profiles allow current and prospective students to see the diverse world of public health careers and promote public health as an exciting and viable career opportunity. To create a profile, graduates of CEPH-accredited schools and programs simply need to fill out the short survey at www.asph.org/survey.
All profiles featured on I AM PUBLIC HEALTH are created from survey responses from real professionals in the field. The profiles are designed to highlight the positions held by graduates and how their work impacts others. The survey asks such questions as:
- Public health focus area
- Major responsibilities
- Description of an average day on the job and the types of projects worked on
- How the work impacts public health directly or indirectly
After completing the survey, each individuals responses are used to create a unique profile in the I AM PUBLIC HEALTH web app. App users are then able to find the created job profiles through randomly or selectively combining search options from the following three criteria: area of public health, type of work and employment setting. When the web-tool selects a position as a match, the user sees the detailed information provided through this survey. Note: Any identifying information (such as names and contact information) is not included in the profiles.
Those interested in completing this survey and letting potential public health students learn more about the profession can submit their information at www.asph.org/survey. To see the web app in action, visit www.iampublichealth.org.
Please direct any questions or concerns to Ms. Allison Foster at firstname.lastname@example.org.
