Roadmap to Ready
Roadmap to Ready is a training and mentoring program designed to help new preparedness coordinators at local health departments navigate the complex landscape of public health preparedness. The goal of the program is to provide participants with the knowledge, skills, connections, and resources they need to successfully lead and coordinate public health disaster/emergency preparedness planning and response activities in their local jurisdictions.
The program uses a blended learning methodology, including an in-person workshop, coaching and mentorship from experienced preparedness coordinators from around the country, and tailored resources. NACCHO designed the program for preparedness coordinators at local health departments who have been in their roles for less than two years.
Applications the 2019 Roadmap to Ready program are now closed! Applicants will be notified by late December.
The in-person workshop is a required component of the Roadmap to Ready program. For the 2019 calendar year, the workshop will be held in conjunction with the Preparedness Summit on Monday, March 25, 2019 in Saint Louis, Missouri, from 8:00am to 5:00pm. Attendees must plan to arrive in Saint Louis on Sunday, March 24, 2019.
Participants and mentors are responsible for all travel expenses to attend the training workshop. Travel scholarships are not available at this time. There is no fee to participate in the in-person training workshop. Acceptance into the Roadmap to Ready program does not cover registration or participation in the 2019 Preparedness Summit. Participation in the 2019 Preparedness Summit following the workshop is encouraged but optional.
Please note: Limited funding may be available for mentors to cover their Preparedness Summit registration.
