The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Academic Partnerships to Improve Health External Link focuses on building public health workforce capacity and improving health of individuals and communities through alliances among academic associations and CDC. In August 2012, CDC awarded the AAMC and three other national academic associations funds to support enhanced teaching of concepts of population health and provide practical, hands-on experience at the community level for public health, medical, and nursing students.

AAMC AHEAD 2015: Medical-Legal Partnerships (MLP) Logic Model

During the first year of the three-year grant period, the AHEAD MLP cohort worked to develop specific outcomes, metrics, and measures that they will use to prospectively evaluate the impact of their MLPs. To guide their measurement, the cohort developed a logic model to lay out how their MLP activity will affect learners, patients, and the health system in the short, medium, and long term.

History of the AAMC-CDC Cooperative Agreement

The AAMC entered into its first Cooperative Agreement with the CDC in 2000 to enhance collaborations between the academic medical and public health practice communities. Achievements of the cooperative agreement include 133 extramural grants projects among constituents, Regional Medicine-Public Health Education Centers and other AAMC-based projects, two published reports, three cycles of a competitive grants program to improve public health content in medical education, student opportunities at CDC, and a multi-professional grants activity to improve preparedness among eight health professions groups.
