Enroll to become an NYS Citizen Public Health Leader.
To continue the fight against COVID and prepare for the next public health emergency, the State announced the launch of a free, online Citizen Public Health Training course for New Yorkers. This innovative course, delivered by the New York State Department of Health in partnership with Cornell University and supported by the State University of New York, will prepare, and equip New Yorkers to become NYS Citizen Public Health Leaders and build an informed network of community health leaders across the state.

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us that America was not prepared for a public health crisis. But when New York was ambushed by the virus, we rose to the occasion, supported each other, and bent the curve. Information - listening to the scientists and following the facts - has been a key weapon in our battle to defeat COVID.
To continue to empower New Yorkers, we are launching a new Citizen Public Health Training where you will learn from top experts from Cornell on preventing and responding to public health emergencies. This innovative course will help New Yorkers support themselves, their families, and their communities. You will become a leader of health and preparedness in your community.
We are calling on New Yorkers in every neighborhood and community in the state to become trained Public Health Leaders. As a New York State Public Health Leader, you will better understand the coronavirus and other public health issues facing our communities and will gain the tools to understand the facts and be a trusted source of information and support in your community.
