Testimonials

I am promoting this exam and I am involved in the teaching of public health at a college level. I feel that the CPH is something that will validate public health as a clear set of disciplines and adds to the expertise that one brings to the table with issues concerning all aspects of public health. My own public health background emphasized economics and the built environment and the CPH has been invaluable as a tool of credibility.
