​​​​​Self-directed regional public health laboratory networks allow members to share testing services, expert guidance and resources with participating laboratories. Grounded in professional relationships and governed by informal agreements, these networks offer participants many opportunities including:

  • Participating in workforce development and training events

  • Sharing testing services, resources and samples for validation

  • Utilizing financial and other support for APHL/CDC-funded activities

  • Collaborating on research studies on topics that are of interest to the regional network, such as workforce compensation

APHL assists regional networks by identifying needs and resources and sharing outcomes and best practices with the larger public health laboratory community.
