Description

Academic health department partnerships — formal partnerships between health departments and academic institutions — have the potential to enhance the capacity of the organizations involved and offer a variety of benefits.

Join the Council on Linkages Between Academia and Public Health Practice and the Public Health Foundation to hear how the Kent City Health Department in Ohio is utilizing an academic health department partnership with Kent State University to expand its capacity and support its journey toward Public Health Accreditation Board accreditation. For this small health department with seven full-time employees, this partnership is broadening its capabilities; speeding up PHAB accreditation efforts; and providing a thought-provoking, real-world experience for Kent State students.

Academic Health Department Learning Community member Michael Anguilano III, accreditation coordinator for the Kent City Health Department, will join the webinar to share this success story of an academic health department partnership in action and will be available for questions and discussion.
