Local public health policy can have a positive impact on the health of the community, creating healthier conditions for living through everything from water fluoridation to tobacco use to minimum wage laws. But did you know that state governments can limit – or even eliminate – the impacts of locally developed policies? Fortunately, options for local public health partnerships are available to manage these challenges.
Join NACCHO on Tuesday, January 14th 1:30 - 2:30 PM ET to learn ways to increase the capacity of local health departments and their partners to create the conditions for health through local public health policy.
1. To identify ways to address social determinants of health through local public health policy using the Healthy People 2020 framework
2. To understand how preemption influences local public health change
3. To describe the function of local public health partnerships in addressing preemption
