Health & Wellness

In the 2021 State of the State, the Governor announced the establishment of the first and best in the nation New York State Public Health Corps (NYSPHC) that will build public health capacity to support COVID-19 vaccination operations and to increase preparedness for future public health emergencies. The Governor directed the NYS Department of Health (NYSDOH) to work with community partners to recruit and deploy up to 1,000 fellows to participate in the NYSPHC Program. NYSPHC Fellows will use their talents and expertise to help advance our State’s public health agenda, while serving their communities.
