Are you interested in contributing to the COVID-19 Response in Wisconsin?
The main focus of the Response Corps Service and Training Members (RCMs) is direct public health response work around COVID-19 in their placement sites. Due to the nature of the emergency and the need for strategic and culturally sensitive engagement across communities, the Response Corps program will deploy a cadre of public health and allied health professionals who have technical skills and receive ongoing training around the equitable and ethical community engagement strategies that are needed to bridge gaps and create collaborations across organizations and communities. RCMs will engage in training, mentoring groups, and communities of practice facilitated by the UW PHI Wisconsin COVID-19 Response Corps program. These additional components will provide an opportunity for professional development and growth while building a network of support and civic solidarity for public health workers across the state.
Depending on needs of LTHDs, we plan on recruiting for a range of positions, including community health workers, public health generalists, epidemiologists, and public health nurses.
