We strive to help your local health department communicate more effectively.
NACCHO develops resources and tools designed to improve the knowledge and skills of local public health officials, assist the efficient operations of local health departments across the nation, and help professionals stay on top of emerging threats to public health.
To ensure stakeholders and other interested parties are adequately informed, NACCHO disseminates high-quality, public health information, tools, and resources to public health professionals through program publications including reports, fact sheets, research briefs, issue briefs, and marketing materials. These publications highlight topics including preparedness, community and environmental health, and public health infrastructure and systems activities.
Additionally, NACCHO strategically communicates news, evidence-based science, and best practices relevant to local health departments through a variety of communications channels, including NACCHO Connect, Public Health Dispatch, NACCHO Exchange, NACCHO Voice, the News from NACCHO column in the Journal of Public Health Management & Practice, and through NACCHO’s social media platforms. These communications include topics such as public health transformation, chronic disease prevention, vector control, infectious disease, accreditation, workforce development, health in all policies, injury and violence prevention, food safety, preparedness, and health equity.
