Webinar: How Academic Partnership Can Enhance Capacity in Small Health Departments

Academic health department (AHD) partnerships – formal partnerships between academic institutions and health departments – 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 on Wednesday, October 24, 2018 from 2-3pm EDT to hear how the Kent City (OH) Health Department’s AHD partnership with Kent State University is expanding its capacity and supporting its journey toward Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) accreditation. AHD Learning Community member Mr. Michael Anguilano III, Accreditation Coordinator for the Kent City Health Department, will join the webinar to discuss how this partnership is broadening the capabilities of this small health department with seven full-time employees; speeding up PHAB accreditation efforts; and providing a thought-provoking, real-world experience for Kent State students.

This webinar is free and open to all, and time will be available for questions and discussion. Please visit the webinar webpage for more information or to register and contact Ms. Kathleen Amos at kamos@phf.org with any questions.
