Graduate Student Seminar Series: Sarah Scales
Impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the public health workforce presented by Sarah Scales, Epidemiology Ph.D. student.
The response to the COVID-19 pandemic has placed significant strain on the public health workforce. While there has been substantial research on the impacts of pandemic response on patient-facing healthcare staff, the impacts of the response on the public health workforce are not well documented. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the continuity of essential public health services and the mental health of the public health workforce. However, there are factors that can be supportive of both immediate and long-term protection of the public health workforce’s sustainability and wellbeing, which are essential in light of the risk of future emergencies.
Sarah Elizabeth Scales is a doctoral student in the epidemiology program. Her research focuses on the use of epidemiologic methods and tools in disaster settings. She has conducted research related to public health emergency systems and structures, the human health impact of heatwaves, and mortality estimation in conflict settings.
