From Shelly Schechter – Director – Division of Community Health, Nassau County Department of Health

There have been significant changes in the practice of public health in the 21st Century, many requiring new partners and paradigms. The NPS CHDS graduate program enables public health professionals to explore the concept of preparedness in an interdisciplinary academic environment. The content of the coursework and the immersion with other military, federal, state and local agency professionals provides a unique opportunity for transformational change. I strongly recommend this challenge!
