Preparing for the Public Health Workforce Interests and Needs Survey (PH WINS) 2024

The de Beaumont Foundation, in partnership with the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), is preparing to field the Public Health Workforce Interests and Needs Survey (PH WINS) in September 2024. PH WINS is a great way to identify opportunities for improvement in the public health workforce by capturing individual-level perspectives on workforce engagement and morale, training needs, and emerging trends in government public health.

In preparation for the fielding of PH WINS, the Midwestern Public Health Training Center (MPHTC) is in the process of recruiting Workforce Champions from local health departments in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska. If you have not yet received a request asking you to complete the Participation Agreement survey/form indicating your desire to participate (or not participate), please contact Erblin Shehu at

Participating departments will receive a customized department report that details the findings from PH WINS. Eligibility for a customized department report is based on staff size and a sufficient response rate.
