A Public Health Grand Rounds event “Wow! We’re Accredited! Where Are We Now and Where Do We Go from Here?” will be held on Thursday, Feb. 26, 3 to 4 p.m., in the Wright State University Student Union Atlantis Room (room 157).
As part of Ohio’s health assessment and health improvement plan, public health departments must be accredited to receive state support. The accreditation process can be long, complicated and often disruptive. Speakers will discuss the process and their experiences.
Speakers include Erik Balster, health commissioner, Preble County General Health District; Lynne M. Saddler, M.D., district director of health, Northern Kentucky Health Department; and Matthew A. Stefanak III, retired health commissioner, Mahoning County District Board of Health, ambassador/instructor, College of Public Health, Kent State University, and affiliate, Center for Public Policy and Health, Kent State University.
The free event is open to the public, including health professionals and those interested in the public health department accreditation process. However, space is limited.
Contact Cyneca Reed at (937) 258-5555 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a seat. Free parking is available in Visitor Lot 2 next to the Student Union.
Public Health Grand Rounds presented by the Master of Public Health Program of the Center for Global Health at the Wright State Boonshoft School of Medicine seek to inform health professionals about public health topics related to prevention and workforce development.
