MPH Programs List.com launched in February of 2012 as a free resource for students interested in graduate public health, public administration, public policy and health administration programs. We aim to cover every facet of public health, policy and administration and how each area of society plays a role. Our goal is to attract students to these under-served yet highly rewarding fields. The Association of Schools of Public Health estimates that by 2020 the United States will face a shortage of more than 250,000 public health workers. This is due to a steadily increasing need for services in disadvantaged populations and the emergence of new biological and environmental threats to overall public health. In addition, another 100,000 current public health workers employed by local, state and federal governments are scheduled to retire during 2012, creating another more immediate shortage of men and women with the latest public health training.
