ApprovedWorkforceTrainingMichigan
This is a model template for use by SHLs who wish to start K-12 laboratory outreach.  The Michigan K-12 Outreach template has three tiers.  In Tier 1, which includes students in kindergarten through third grade, young students are familiarized with the basics of science and introduced to “science heroes.” In Tier 2, which includes students in fourth through eighth grade, students learn about specific laboratory testing and disease prevention. Students in this tier learn about the testing that a public health laboratory performs and how that testing affects the public’s health. In Tier 3, which includes students in ninth through twelfth grade, students are introduced to streaking agar plates and pH determination. These students learn about instrumentation and relate testing to emerging public health issues. In addition, students are provided with information about laboratory majors and careers available within public health laboratories.

ApprovedWorkforceHR; TrainingIowa
This is a National Public Health Laboratory Internship Model to be used by public health laboratories across the nation for the development and recruitment of the public health workforce at the local, state, and national level. The model is designed to be flexible to adapt easily to the changing needs and capacity of organizations and can be utilized to develop new programs or improve existing programs.  While this model has been developed to meet the specific needs of a public health laboratory it can be easily modified for use in the broader public health arena. Contained within this model is a short description of key components of an internship program with supplementary material and tools in the appendixes.  The document has been formated to be printed on back to back pages.

ApprovedOperations; Workforce; Research; CommunicationsFinance; Funding; Strategic Planning; Surveys; Training; FacilitiesAPHL
For many years, directors of public health laboratories have complained about noncompetitive salaries and blamed that for a shortage of competent laboratory scientists, an unacceptably narrow workforce pipeline, and high employee turnover. In 2010, the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) began collecting reliable public health laboratory compensation data applicable to compensation analysis and improving public health laboratory salaries and salary structures. This paper is intended to show users of APHL salary data some ways they can use that data to carry out compensation analyses and help justify needed compensation improvements.

As labs have moved to new buildings or new locations or partnered with universities or hospitals-and as lab leaders have strategized on such changes-APHL has been helping the process. We've sought out the knowledge of those who have been there to save those moving in the future time and resources. These lab directors and other lab leaders shared frankly what worked for them and their colleagues and what they wish they'd known.

Foodborne illness and death is not only tragic; it is exorbitantly expensive. We can prevent countless illnesses and deaths with a stronger system for detecting contaminated food.

With adequate funding, the US can accelerate detection and identification of foodborne illnesses, thus saving lives, lowering health care expenses, and limiting the impact on affected businesses.
