Apply for NACDD’s State Technical Assistance and Review Program (STAR)

STAR is designed to assess chronic disease prevention programs in state and territorial health departments. The goal of STAR is to support development, implementation and evaluation of chronic disease prevention and control efforts through:

  • self study
  • on-site program assessment
  • recommendations for improvement, and
  • follow-up assistance in addressing recommendations

STAR examines the extent to which categorical chronic disease programs are integrated into a coordinated approach, using CDC’s Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Domains and the NACDD Framework for Comprehensive Chronic Disease Programs. STAR also helps prepare states seeking public health accreditation.

NACDD has CDC funding for 3 states to participate in STAR in 2015. For more information, go to: www.chronicdisease.org/?STARFAQ.

If you are interested in applying, contact Lisa Daily (daily@chronicdiseae.org or 404 421-4898) as soon as possible. She can discuss potential benefits of your State’s participation, assist with the application process, and advise you on how to have a most successful STAR experience.
