The Best Practices Team will help participants exchange technical information and share experiences, lessons learned and best practices about health and the environment. The group will also facilitate discussions about the utility of tracking data in chronic disease prevention and support opportunities for collaboration among environmental health professionals and chronic disease practitioners.

“Last year’s cycle was a successful effort. We will continue to build upon the work done through the collaborative learning efforts of cycle one. The new Health and the Environment Best Practices Team will play a key role in building a more informed workforce,” said John Robitscher, CEO of NACDD.

Overall, the Health and the Environment Best Practices Team will address:

  • Connections between chronic diseases and the environment
  • Best practices for communicating environmental health data

You are cordially invited to the official launch of cycle two on Oct. 20, 2016 from 2-2:45 p.m. ET.

NACDD will host the launch, along with CDC’s Environmental Public Health Tracking Program. Join peers, thought leaders, and subject matter experts as we discuss current topics, trends, and best practices.

Holly Wilson, Health Communications Team Lead with the Environmental Health Tracking Branch, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Stephanie Mathews, Public Health Consultant with NACDD will talk with attendees about the new season of the initiative. During the session you’ll learn how cycle two can benefit chronic disease and/or environmental health practitioners and cycle one successes.

Your contribution to this effort will be greatly appreciated! Register today to reserve your seat:
