Local Health Department Receiving Technical Assistance: Lee County Health Department, IA
NACCHO is currently offering technical assistance support to local health departments to improve their capacity to develop or enhance health promotion programs for people living with disabilities through coordination of existing health department and community services.
Lee County Health Department is receiving technical assistance from Franklin Regional Council of Governments and is making progress in addressing disability emergency preparedness needs by conducting “Community Conversation” meetings, developing emergency registries with first responders, and shifting their focus from a systems level approach to disability and emergency preparedness to building individual and group capacity. Lee County Health Department also completed an internal assessment of its public health emergency educational messages and materials to assure that they are in a format that is understandable.
