do you guys have a newletter or anything like that?
What does one have to do to contact someone at NBPHE? I've called, sent emails, posted to facebook, and have received exactly zero responses. I am attempting to register for the exam, have a question, and can not find an adequate answer. Please advise.
Allison Foster, President of the NBPHE. In this role, Allison is responsible for testing and administration of the CPH exam as well as the CPH recertification process. Allison is also the Deputy Executive Director of the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health, a national membership for public health education. She oversees membership, as well as operational and financial functions of the association.
Online study groups for the CPH exam?
Can anyone who has taken the CPH exam please tell me how long it takes to study? ( I'm almost done with my MPH program), and also give me some feedback on how the test is?
