CHRONIC DISEASE DIRECTORS FORUM WEBINAR SERIES

Chronic Disease Directors Forum Webinars

 

The Chronic Disease Directors Forum Webinars (formerly First Thursday Webinars) support leadership and management capacity building for Chronic Disease Directors at State Health Departments nationwide. The webinars feature presentations on timely public health topics, leadership and management theory and practice, practice-based examples from state chronic disease and health promotion units, and more. Additionally, these webinars provide an opportunity for states to hear updates from CDC and from NACDD. Each webinar includes time for discussion and a question and answer period. The webinars are held in the beginning of the month, which is every first Thursday for most NACDD Chronic Disease Director members, at 3:00 p.m. ET for one hour.
