Professional Development and Workforce Training
One of the foundational pillars of the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors is its focus on professional development and workforce training. From its Chronic Disease Academy to monthly member webinars, NACDD is at the cutting edge of providing educational opportunities to its members. For instance, NACDD's General Member Calls (now conducted via webinars) allow members to hear various educational topics presented monthly (January through December) in a one-hour call on the fourth Thursday at 3:00 pm EDT. Subjects chosen are based on needs assessment data from NACDD membership and are also related to 1) NACDD Competency Domains, 2) Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Domains and 3) PHAB Standards. NACDD’s Professional Development and Workforce Training Center features a variety of training/educational modalities including webinars, training videos, public health lectures and on-line courses. Our webinar library features a collection of archived professional development events sponsored by NACDD
as well as other public health organizations.
