Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Public Health Finance, Part Two

The second webinar in a two-part series by the APHA Health Administration Section on public health finance.

In Part One, we discussed the absence of financial literacy as a matter of some concern in public health practice because it affects managerial decisions about the allocation of scarce government and community resources. You have to know where the money comes from and where it should go to be an effective public health administrator/administrator.

In this, the second webinar, our panel provides information on pathways to financial literacy for public health practitioners. We discuss resources that can increase financial literacy.

Webinar Duration:  30 minutes (In total about 45-50 minutes with prep session before we start the webinar)

Moderator: Kellen Sweny, Deputy Assistant Director, Houston Health Department 

Panelist: Benjamin Hernandez, Treasurer, American Public Health Association 

Panelist: Susan Wheelan, Director, El Paso County Public Health Department 

Panelist: JP Leider, Director of the Center for Public Health Workforce Development and Applied Practice at University of Minnesota School of Public Health.
