A Special Conversation with Adriane Casalotti NACCHO’s Chief of Government and Public Affairs

Washington, DC, December 11, 2020 — In a special episode of the National Association of County and City Health Official’s (NACCHO’s) Podcast Series, Ian Goldstein and Adriane Casalotti, the organization’s Chief of Government and Public Affairs, discuss how NACCHO is engaging with the incoming Presidential administration and Congress to better support local health departments. They walk through NACCHO’s transition recommendations for the Biden-Harris Administration and the incoming 117th Congress, as well policy and funding needs during the current “lame duck” session. They also go behind the scenes to discuss how a transition document is developed and how it can impact policy and decision making.

NACCHO’s Transition Recommendations highlight the key role local health departments play in our country’s health and safety and lays out specific efforts to help the U.S. emerge safely from the COVID-19 pandemic and strengthen the public health system that protects the public in small towns, big cities, and all the communities in between.

Recommendation themes include:

  • Support Local Health Departments on the Frontlines of the COVID-19 Response
  • Strengthen the Governmental Public Health Partnership to Harness Expertise from the Local Level in National Planning
  • Invest in COVID-19 Vaccine Deployment and Infrastructure
  • Restore Support and Trust in Public Health
  • Provide Long-term Investment to Protect the Public and Strengthen Health Equity
  • Maintain and Grow COVID-19 Innovations and Investments

The podcast can be accessed here.

The full transition document can be found here.
