NACCHO’s Top 5 Environmental Health Resources & Opportunities Right Now

Apr 04, 2018 | Michelle Shapiro

National Public Health Week is April 2 – 8, and in honor of today’s theme of environmental health, we are sharing the top five environmental health resources and opportunities from NACCHO you need to know about right now:

  1. Participate in the Local Environmental Health Directors & Managers Collaborative: NACCHO is piloting a new collaborative to foster a dynamic community for environmental health leaders and serve as a simple forum for sharing and discussing best practices, available resources, and innovative ideas.
  2. Download new Health in All Policies Fact Sheets: Health in All Policies (HiAP) is a change in systems to ensure policy decisions have neutral or beneficial impacts on health determinants. NACCHO developed a series of fact sheets to provides promising strategies, recommendations, and key assets for implementation for local health department HiAP initiatives.
  3. Apply for the Vector Control Technical Assistance Program: Technical assistance will focus on providing actionable steps for local health departments to build core competencies in mosquito control and surveillance. Local health departments that wish to improve or implement a mosquito control program are eligible to apply.
  4. Join the Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC) Network: The MAHC Network is a community for MAHC users, subject matter experts, and those hoping to learn about the code itself. Members receive updates on the code, have access and provide input to newly developed resources, and join bi-monthly webinars featuring the code and users.
  5. Register for the Reduced Oxygen Packaging (ROP) webinar: Join NACCHO on April 25 from 3:30 – 4:30pm ET for a webinar providing the industry perspective on implementing ROP in restaurants and an environmental services department perspective on the review processes for restaurants using ROP.
