Are you interested in learning all about Public Health Accreditation? Please join us for two webinars featuring an overview of the Public Health Accreditation process and an in depth look at the standards and measures used to provide guidance to health departments preparing for accreditation. 

With funding from the Office of Minority Health-National Partnership for Action, The National Indian Health Board and ASTHO are hosting a webinar series on Public Health Accreditation. The webinars were created with Tribal communities in mind, but other public health professionals who work with Tribes, would like to work with Tribes or have a general interest in learning more about accreditation are welcome to attend. Robin Wilcox, Chief Program Officer for the Public Health Accreditation Board will be the featured speaker for both webinars and the 2nd webinar will feature a Tribal Councilperson who will focus on the policy levers around Tribal accreditation.
