COVID19 Advisory Board

Call for Applications: NACCHO COVID-19 IPC Workforce Training Advisory Board

Oct 15, 2020 | Erin Laird

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), with the support of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is accepting applications for the 2020-2021 NACCHO COVID-19 Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Workforce Training Advisory Board. This new, time-limited group will work in partnership with NACCHO staff to identify gaps in the training available to support local health department IPC efforts in various congregate settings. The NACCHO COVID-19 IPC Workforce Training Advisory Board will also inform the process of enhancing training and materials available to build local health department IPC knowledge and capacity.

Members of the NACCHO COVID-19 IPC Workforce Training Advisory Board will be expected to participate in regularly scheduled advisory board calls (likely on a monthly basis); review existing IPC materials and resources, provide feedback on the gaps in IPC training available, share insight on local IPC training priorities, and partner with NACCHO staff to improve existing and develop new resources to support local health departments’ IPC knowledge and capacity. Members will also be asked to provide perspectives on extending IPC training reach to special populations disproportionately affected by COVID-19.

Members will have the opportunity to contribute to the national conversation and efforts regarding COVID-19 and IPC, guide the development of tools and resources for local health departments, and connect with national subject matter experts and other health department staff.

While applications will be accepted from staff of local health departments across the nation, geographic distribution, type of setting, and size of population served will be considered to ensure diversity in advisory board membership.

For more information, or to apply, send a current CV and a brief explanation of your interest in joining the NACCHO COVID-19 IPC Workforce Training Advisory Board to Erin Laird (elaird@naccho.org) by October 30.
