What can Public Health Institutes do for my Health Department?
Wednesday, May 30, 2012 | 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM Pacific

State and local health departments across the United States are the backbone of a public health system that promotes health and prevents disease. Public health institutes (PHIs) are nonprofit organizations that improve the capacity and performance of the public health system by fostering innovation, leveraging resources, and building partnerships across sectors, including government agencies, communities, the health care delivery system, media, and academia. This Web Forum will highlight the growing number of public health institutes and work they are doing to complement governmental public health agencies. We will discuss strategies for state and local health departments to work with public health institutes, with a special example from Louisiana. We will also provide an overview of technical assistance available from the National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI), review a new funding opportunity from NNPHI for jurisdictions currently without a public health institute, and provide highlights from NNPHI's 2012 Annual Conference (May 21-23).

Co-sponsored by NNPHI, this Web Forum is the first in a series highlighting what public health institutes can do for health departments. The 2nd and 3rd installments (planned for Summer and Fall 2012) will highlight relationships between public health institutes and state and local health departments. Please join us for this exciting Web Forum!
