Recruitment for 2017-2018 NACCHO advisory groups (i.e., committees and workgroups), including four environmental health groups (one committee and three workgroups) is open through May 5, 2017. NACCHO advisory groups are a primary and recognized vehicle for identifying the opportunities and challenges facing local health departments (LHDs) and the field at large. NACCHO members from all areas of public health come together to explore the many facets of the field and help NACCHO make the best decisions in serving its members, and local public health.
NACCHO’s environmental health workgroup and committee members serve an advisory role in developing programs and policy that are representative of the needs of local health departments (LHDs). Interested participants are asked to complete an online application, via the NACCHO Advisory Group webpage by May 5. Additional questions and/or inquires can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
