Jun 28, 2021 | Anu Varma

The first Environmental Health issue since 2016, this journal highlights local health departments’ recent work across a spectrum of programs including vector control, water quality and safety, Health in All Policies, climate change, retail food safety, and more.

Below is an excerpt from the Exchange.

Mentorship in the Midst of COVID-19: Participants Share Lessons Learned from NACCHO’s Vector Control Collaborative

By Sarah Fink (Angle), RS, Vector Program Coordinator, Community Environmental Health, Franklin County Public Health (OH); Tre’ Williams, Supervisor, Oklahoma City County Health Department; Jackson Ward, MPH, Epidemiologist II, Epidemiology Division, Department of Health and Environment (KS).

The 2020 cohort of the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) Vector Control Collaborative (VCC) was the first to include a local health department (LHD) without an established vector program. The Oklahoma City-County Health Department (OCCHD), Oklahoma, provided invaluable guidance and mentorship to the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment (JCDHE), Kansas, as it navigated the challenges of establishing a new vector control program amid the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. JCDHE supports a county of over 600,000 residents in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area. Despite its large size, Johnson County does not currently have a vector control program in place.
