To promote and support a healthy nation, public health needs a complete picture of both the person and their community. Advances in technology are now making it possible to link health information across public and private systems to gather this information. Trust in these systems and integrity of the data within them is critical to improving public health. This session will discuss how data can be used to improve public health and the ways to instill trust in data.

The COVID-19 has severely impacted the mental wellbeing of the public health workforce. A CDC survey of governmental public health workers conducted between March and April 2021 found that 53% of respondents reported an adverse mental health condition—such as depression, anxiety, and suicide—in the two weeks prior to taking the survey. Similarly, the Public Health Workforce Interest and Needs Survey, fielded by the deBeaumont Foundation between September 2021 and January 2022, found that over 50% of respondents reported at least one symptom of post-traumatic stress disorder. This plenary will explore the impact COIVD-19 had on the public health workforce mental wellbeing and discuss strategies for coping, recovering, and building strength within the workforce as we move forward.
