Public health training slated for April.
The goal of the public health performance standards training workshop is to teach participants how to conduct the program's state, local and governance assessment process and use the results to coordinate performance improvement efforts. The training is recommended for staff from state, local and tribal health departments and board of health members.
APHA is one of seven national partners, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Public Health Foundation and Association of State and Territorial Health Officials, that have joined to support the National Public Health Performance Standards Program as a way to strengthen the nation's public health system through recognized national standards for state and local health departments.
The Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships training will teach participants how to use the instrument for performance improvement. Learn more at www. naccho.org/mapp.
