Award recognizes best practices in addressing pressing public health challenges —

Washington, DC, July 20, 2022 — Today, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), the voice of the country’s nearly 3,000 local governmental health departments, named its 2022 Model and Promising Practice Award Winners, an annual recognition of local public health best practices. This year, five outstanding local health department programs have been recognized as Model Practices and sixteen programs have been recognized as Promising Practices. Videos describing each of the 2022 Model Practices can be found here. Videos describing the 2022 Innovative practices are here. The awards will be presented during the 2022 NACCHO360 Annual Conference in Atlanta on July 20, 2022.

Model Practices are programs demonstrating exemplary and replicable qualities in response to a critical local public health need, and Promising Practices have demonstrated exciting approaches and strategies to local public health issues that are on track to becoming Model Practices.

“While much of the attention has been on the COVID-19 pandemic, local health departments have continued to support their communities across a host of programmatic areas and public health challenges. It is a phenomenal effort on the part of local health departments to be responding to a pandemic and still be innovating, spreading, and sharing best practices in the midst of crisis,” said NACCHO’s Chief Executive Officer Lori Tremmel Freeman. “We are proud to recognize the 2022 Model and Promising Practice Awards as a showcase of the best and brightest in local public health. Winners display excellence in a diverse range of topics including issues such as veterans’ health, overdose prevention, and many more issues.”

Winning projects as determined through a competitive, peer-reviewed process will be added to NACCHO’s Model Practice searchable online database. There, other public health leaders can review these best practices and adopt them for use in their community.
