CONCLUSION

The discussion and suggestions generated in this one-day workshop serve as an important base of information for those engaged in efforts to implement the recommendations of the report Who Will Keep the Public Healthy? The report provides a framework for public health education, and, as Dr. McGinnis states, the vision necessary to address public health challenges squarely. This framework requires the collaborative effort of individuals from diverse perspective—perspectives that are represented by the workshop participants themselves including academia, governmental public health agencies, the community, foundations, associations, and other interested stakeholders.

Effective public health action depends upon a competent, well-trained public health workforce. Such a workforce is in the best interest of all those who are interested in keeping the public healthy.
