History

The Florida Center for Public Health Preparedness (FCPHP) was designated and funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through a cooperative agreement with the Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH) in April, 2001. It was one of the first 7 academic public health preparedness centers thus designated. There are now 27 academic centers for public health preparedness in accredited schools of public health.

FCPHP is the only CDC designated Academic Center for Public Health Preparedness in the state of Florida. FCPHP is a part of the University of South Florida, College of Public Health; the only fully accredited College of Public Health in the state of Florida.

Purpose

To improve the capacity of public health workers to respond to bioterrorism and other current, new, and emerging public health threats in Florida and the nation by providing training and resources that will contribute to public health workforce preparedness. The Center has three national specialty training areas: disaster behavioral health, crisis leadership, and epidemiology.
