Without strong systems for gathering, using, and sharing information, federal, state and local public health offices cannot adequately detect disease outbreaks, notify the public of emerging health problems or promote sound health practices. Recognizing the importance of this issue, the National Library of Medicine (NLM) will administer a $3.68 million grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) to develop tomorrow’s public health leaders in the science of public health informatics.

Public health informatics is the practice of integrating state-of-the-art computer technology for managing knowledge and information to enhance the work of public health professionals and others. The Foundation for the National Institutes of Health will receive the money from RWJF. The National Library of Medicine, a part of the National Institutes of Health, will administer the grant program. NLM has a longstanding history of training the country’s biomedical informatics researchers and professionals.
