Now Available! 2018 Public Health Communication Webinar Series

In late spring/early summer of 2018, NACCHO hosted a four-part webinar series to help local health departments build capacity to engage in public health communication. The webinar topics were selected based on a two-part needs assessment that NACCHO conducted to determine local health departments’ communications capacity, capabilities, and skills gaps. The recordings from those webinars are now available!
